The DBCT access undertaking provides for the Authority to approve the Annual Revenue Requirement (ARR) annual roll-forward of the terminal's regulated revenues and tariffs.
Where DBCT Management also submits non-expansion capital (NECAP) expenditure for inclusion into its regulated asset base, the Authority assesses the NECAP proposal jointly with the ARR roll forward proposal as both affect the regulated revenues that DBCT Management can recover via the terminal infrastructure charge (TIC) from 1 July of the following financial year.

On 9 June 2011, the Authority approved DBCT Management's ARR roll forward for 2011-12 and NECAP expenditure for 2009-10 and 2010-11, providing for an ARR of $246,117,230 and TIC of $2.9016, effective from 1 July 2011.
