From 1 July 2010 the ports prescribed services subject to price monitoring have been limited to the provision of the following:
- berths, buoys or dolphins, and of short term storage or cargo marshalling facilities in relation to container and motor vehicle cargoes, and
- channel services in the port of Melbourne channels (including the shared channels), and the port of Hastings channels only in respect of container or motor vehicle cargoes.
The effect of these changes is that from 1 July 2010, Port of Melbourne Corporation is the only port operator to be monitored with respect to its shipping channels and the wharves that serve containerised and motor vehicle cargoes.
The Price Monitoring Determination 2010 gives effect to the new regulatory regime applying for the five year period 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2015.
