Review of the Dairy Industry Code

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We are reviewing the Competition and Consumer (Industry Codes – Dairy) Regulations 2019 (the Code).

The Code has been operating for just over a year. This first review is critical to assessing the Code’s role, impact and operation since coming into force.

You can now provide feedback on the effectiveness of the Code and the terms and conditions it entails.

We want to hear from stakeholders in the dairy industry, including farmers, processors, industry representative bodies, government agencies, and consumer organisations.

Your feedback will inform the review and help determine the effectiveness of the Code.

We have prepared a discussion paper to inform and encourage comments on the Code. It includes:

  • introduction
  • background
  • review procedures
  • discussion questions
  • other relevant reading for the review.

How to have your say

Submit your feedback by 15 August 2021.

What happens next

We will analyse submissions and other contributions to the review. We will then draft a report for the Agriculture Minister. The Agriculture Minister must ensure that a copy of the review report is provided to the Treasurer by 31 December 2021, as the Minister administering section 51AE of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

The report will include recommendations about the future role and operation of the Code.
