Australian Competition Tribunal Appointments



I am pleased to announce the appointment of two additional Deputy Presidents to the Australian Competition Tribunal.

The Hon Justice Peter Heerey, of Melbourne, has been appointed until 15 February 2009. Justice Heerey has been a Judge of the Federal Court of Australia since December 1990 and is also President of the Defence Force Discipline Appeals Tribunal.

The Hon Justice Roger Gyles AO, of Sydney, has been appointed until 21 August 2008. Justice Gyles has been a Judge of the Federal Court of Australia since June 1999 and is also an Additional Judge of the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory.

The Tribunal’s core function is to review a range of decisions under the Trade Practices Act 1974.

The Tribunal consists of presidential members – who must be federal Judges – and other members who must be qualified by virtue of their ‘knowledge of, or experience in, industry, commerce, economics, law or public administration’. Members serve on a part-time basis, as required, for a term of up to 7 years.

Following these appointments, the Tribunal will now comprise five presidential members and seven other members.
