PETNET Australia

Competitive neutrality investigation report

This investigation report was released on 4 April 2012.

The investigation resulted from a complaint alleging that PETNET Australia is not complying with competitive neutrality policy and has gained a commercial advantage due to government ownership.

The Australian Government Competitive Neutrality Complaints Office (AGCNCO) finds that PETNET Australia's current business plan will put it in breach of competitive neutrality requirements. The AGCNCO makes recommendations for PETNET Australia to comply with the Australian Government's competitive neutrality policy. Further details can be found in the report.
