ANF National Professional Development and Training Update

The ANF has received a fantastic response from newsagents and industry partners alike since the announcement of our National Professional Development and Training Program. As a result of this feedback there has been a review of the features required in the electronic Learning Management System (LMS) being developed for the training platform.

The positive response from so many of our newsagency industry partners has led to a postponement of the launch of the first units of training, originally scheduled for November.

ANF Response to Competition Policy Review (Harper Review) Draft Report

The Draft Report of the Competition Policy Review Panel (Harper Review) was released in September. The ANF had provided a detailed submission to the Review.

We feel the approach taken so far by the panel in their recommendations in the Draft Report is reflective of a fairly narrow pure economic approach to protecting competition. This is based around specifically the ‘lessening of competition’ and not competitors. We have prepared a further detailed submission in response, highlighting that the objects clauses of most competition law take a broader approach than the purely economic. It is our view that competition law should factor in other considerations. We feel that issues such as 'fair conduct' and 'fair trading' need to receive more consideration and weighting in the Draft recommendations.
