Trade Practices Commission v Service Station Association Limited [1993] FCA 405 | 26 August 1993

ON 26 AUGUST 1993, the Federal Court of Australia delivered Trade Practices Commission v Service Station Association Limited [1993] FCA 405; (1993) Atpr 41-260 (1993) 116 ALR 643 (1993) 44 FCR 206 (26 August 1993).

Section 45 of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) prohibits a corporation from making or giving effect to contracts, arrangements or understandings in restraint of trade. The court held that an arrangement or understanding does not necessarily require an element of mutual commitment but, in practice, reciprocity of obligation would ordinarily be assumed by the other party.
