Market studies Bill passed

On: 24 October 2018

The Government has welcomed the passing of a Bill that enables market studies to be undertaken into whether competition in a market is working effectively.

In addition to authorising market studies, the Commerce Amendment Bill strengthens the regulatory regime to better protect users of airport services from the exercise of market power by airport companies.

It also ensures the Commerce Commission has the tools it needs to promote competition and protect consumers.
