Read the resources we produce on the Port of Melbourne's compliance with pricing regulations.
Port of Melbourne compliance with pricing regulations
Each year, the Port of Melbourne must submit a tariff compliance statement to us. The port’s statements outline how it has demonstrated compliance with a pricing order (legislation that regulates how the port sets its prices). Every five years we are required to assess whether there has been any significant and sustained non-compliance with the pricing order.
Outside of these five-yearly reviews, we provide interim commentaries on the port's compliance statements in order to provide guidance to the port, as well as identify issues of importance to other stakeholders. Our commentaries are not an assessment of the port’s compliance with the pricing order, nor do they provide findings on whether any non-compliance was significant and sustained.

Inquiry into compliance with the pricing order
We have commenced the first of our five-yearly reviews into the port's compliance with the pricing order.
Tariff compliance statement 2021-22
The Port of Melbourne has provided its tariff compliance statement for prices that apply from 1 July 2021. The port's submission included both public and confidential information across a number of appendices with supporting information, such as its regulatory model and consultant reports.
Unlike prior years, we will not be preparing an interim commentary on the port's 2021-22 tariff compliance statement because we are currently undetaking a five-yearly review. You can read the port's public submissions and our previous four interim commentaries under the Resources tab.
