Coles and the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), both represented by Allens, have successfully applied to the ACCC for permission to cooperate in the industry in the face of the pandemic, with Coles wanting to ensure that consumers have fair and equitable access to food. and AEMO want to ensure safe and reliable access to energy for Australian households and businesses. “We believe this cooperation will particularly benefit our existing and future research on digital platforms, which will be closely monitored by many agencies around the world,” Sims said. The MMAC also provides a standard contractual framework for signatory agencies wishing to develop expanded agreements among themselves. The model establishes inter-authority support protocols, including the application framework, protection of inside and protected information, cost strategies, confidentiality requirements, and the scope and restrictions of support. . . .
