The Queensland third party access regime is contained in Part 5 of the Queensland Competition Authority Act 1997 (Qld) (QCA Act). Currently, three services are declared for third party access:
- the use of a coal system for providing transportation by rail. The relevant 'coal system' is defined to include rail transport infrastructure that is part of the Blackwater, Goonyella, Moura and Newlands systems.
- the use of rail transport infrastructure for providing transportation by rail, where the railway manager is Queensland Rail, or its successor, assign or subsidiary.
- the handling of coal at Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal by the terminal operator.
