ACCC immunity & cooperation policy: frequently asked questions

This document supplements the ACCC immunity and cooperation policy for cartel conduct. The frequently asked questions may be amended from time to time to address issues that may arise in the application of the policy.


Note: Amendments to section 45 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (the CCA) commenced on 6 November 2017, repealing section 45(2).

The ACCC is currently reviewing the ACCC immunity & cooperation policy for cartel conduct and ACCC immunity & cooperation policy for cartel conduct – frequently asked questions in light of these amendments.

While these publications are under review, references to section 45(2) of the CCA should be read as references to section 45(1)(a), (b) and (c) of the CCA.

This position may change once the review of the Immunity Policy and FAQs is finalised. We expect to release revised documents in early 2019.
