The private port operator is required to report to the Commission each year on material instances of non-compliance with the private port operator’s access policy. The Commission provides a report to the Minister each year on material instances of non-compliance with a private port operator’s access policy and if there has been any material instance of non-compliance with the Commission’s determination.
