Stakeholders were invited to comment on the 2018 Modification DAAU. The QCA stated that, subject to submissions, it may publish a draft decision on the DAAU and seek further comment, or proceed directly to a final decision.

The QCA received one submission, from the DBCT User Group.

On 9 May 2018 the QCA received a draft amending access undertaking (DAAU) from DBCT Management Pty Ltd (DBCTM) seeking to modify the wording of the 2017 access undertaking. DBCTM said the 2018 Modification DAAU fully complied with the QCA’s draft decision on the 2017 Modification DAAU.

The QCA set a short consultation period of two weeks because:

  • these matters had already been consulted upon as part of the 2017 Modification DAAU process
  • the new drafting proposed by DBCTM was published on the QCA website on 30 April as part of DBCTM’s submission to the QCA’s draft decision.

The QCA noted DBCTM had responded to the DBCT User Group submission on the QCA’s draft decision in its cover letter.

The DAAU and related documents can be downloaded below.
