Port Access Voluntary Code of Conduct

 
In accordance with the recommendations contained in the Productivity Commission Report into Wheat Export Marketing Arrangements, the requirement for port terminal operators to pass an Access Test as a condition for exporting bulk wheat requirement will cease on 30 September 2014.

The legislation to enable these changes has been introduced by the Australian Government and will transition the wheat export market to full deregulation.

From 1 October 2014, access to port terminal services will be governed by a voluntary industry code of conduct (the Code) and general competition law, subject to the Code meeting legislative requirements and the approval of the Australian Government. Recognising the need to coordinate industry to develop a Code, Grain Trade Australia (GTA) in its capacity as the secretariat, has formed an industry driven Code Development Committee (CDC).
