Prescribed Mandatory Code of Conduct for Port Access
The bulk wheat export market is transitioning to full deregulation under reforms being implemented by the Australian Government.
Under the Wheat Export Marketing Act 2008, as amended in 2012, the requirement for port terminal operators that export bulk wheat to have access undertakings in place with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) will be removed on 1 October 2014, provided a mandatory industry code of conduct (the Code) is prescribed under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.
Access to port services will then be governed by the Code and general competition law. .
