The Australian Competition Tribunal today decided to uphold the appeal by Services Sydney against the Minister's decision not to declare certain services provided by Sydney Water. This means that the services may be subject to regulation. Services Sydney applied for declaration of these services in order to begin a business of retailing and processing of wastewater. For this purpose, it sought access to the transportation services provided by the wastewater pipes of Sydney Water.
Frontier (Australia) advised Sydney Water throughout the process of Application and appeal to the Tribunal.
