On 29 June 2018, DBCT Management made a late submission to the QCA, providing additional material in connection with its proposed Access Framework (available below under ‘DBCT Management - late submission’). As the date for providing initial submissions to the QCA has passed, the QCA does not intend to take this late submission into account in making its draft recommendation. The QCA will, however, consider this material following its draft recommendation, and before making its final recommendation. 

The QCA does not seek further submissions from interested parties on this material at this time, and does not intend to take any such submissions into account in making its draft recommendation.  Interested parties will be invited to respond to this late submission, should they wish to do so, in submissions following the QCA's draft recommendation.
