Document Summary:

Queensland Competition Authority Act 1997 (Part 5 “Access to Services”) – The Act establishes a regulatory framework for third-party access to “significant infrastructure” providing services including railway infrastructure. The elements of this framework are similar to the national open access regime. The regulatory regime applies if a service has been “declared” by ministerial decision. The regime grants third parties a right to negotiate access to “declared services”. If the parties are unable to agree on the terms of access, either can refer the matter to the regulator (Queensland Competition Authority). The Act sets out rules for the negotiation of access agreements, dispute resolution and the preparation and approval of access undertakings.
