Competition Policy Review
The Prime Minister and the Minister for Small Business announced a review of competition policy on 4 December 2013. On 27 March 2014, the Minister for Small Business released the final Terms of Reference following consultation with the States and Territories and announced the Review Panel.
The Terms of Reference ask the Review Panel to release an Issues Paper and a Draft Report before finalising their Report to the Government within 12 months.
The Draft Report was released on 22 September 2014. Submissions are invited to be made by 17 November 2014.
Public forums to discuss the Draft Report were held in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane during October 2014. Further forums will be held shortly in Canberra, Darwin and Hobart. If you would like to attend one of the forums you are required to register.
The Panel members have each made a statement on the Competition Policy Review’s Draft Report.
The Issues Paper was released on 14 April 2014 and was open for submissions until 10 June 2014. All non-confidential submissions are available to be viewed.
