The National Access Regime is a regulatory framework through which third parties may seek access to nationally significant infrastructure services.  The Government decided to respond to the Productivity Commission 2013 report on the Regime alongside its response to the Competition Policy Review led by Professor Ian Harper ('the Harper Review'). Recommendation 42 of the Harper Review was on the Regime.

The Government response agrees with the Productivity Commission and the Harper Review's findings that the Regime can help promote competition and should be retained. However, given that two decades have passed since the Regime was established, it is timely to consider their expert advice and, where necessary, refine the Regime. The Government's changes are intended to ensure that the Regime remains effective and efficient.
