Competitive neutrality

Government businesses may compete with private sector businesses in a variety of markets.

When this happens, government businesses should comply with competitive neutrality principles to ensure they don't have a competitive advantage because of public ownership.

Where a private sector business believes a government business has an unfair competitive advantage as a result of public ownership, a complaint can be lodged.

To find out more about the complaints process read the competitive neutrality policy.
