As announced in the Budget 2021-22, Treasury is conducting a sectoral assessment of the telecommunications sector.
Written submissions are sought from stakeholders on the questions contained in the consultation paper.
Responses to the telecommunications sectoral assessment consultation will inform the final report, which the Minister will consider when deciding whether to designate telecommunications as a CDR sector. The telecommunications sectoral assessment is conducted with reference to the criteria set out in section 56AD the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.
Treasury is also conducting a strategic assessment consultation to inform analysis and advice to the Government about how the CDR should be rolled out. The strategic assessment process will form the foundations of the Government’s CDR Implementation Roadmap. This consultation is open until 2 September 2021.
