Applying an Effects Test under s 46 of the Competition and Consumer Act

Corones, Stephen G. (2016) Applying an Effects Test under s 46 of the Competition and Consumer Act. In Bar Association QLD Event, 25 July 2016, Queensland.


In its Final Report released in March 2015, the Competition Policy Review Committee (Harper Review Committee) made some radical recommendations for the reform of Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (CCA), and none more so than Recommendation 30. Recommendation 30 is that s 46(1) should be amended to prohibit a corporation that has a substantial degree of market power from engaging in conduct that has the purpose, effect or likely effect of substantially lessening competition. 1
