Access Policy Approved and Final Decision Released

‚ÄčIn late 2015 the Northern Territory Government leased the Port of Darwin to a private port operator. As part of this lease arrangement, the Government introduced a regulatory regime that requires the private port operator to establish an Access Policy.

Since 2016, the Commission has been working with the private port operator and stakeholders on the proposed Access Policy. The Commission recently published a Draft Access Policy and Draft Decision for final comment. After consideration of stakeholder comments and minor revisions, the Commission approved the Access Policy and published its Final Decision on 30 June 2017.
