  • The purpose of this report is to publicly notify receipt of a new application by ANZFA. It is based on available information provided by the applicant, and is designed to assist in identifying the issues in relation to the application, the affected parties, and alternative regulatory options available. The information needed to make an assessment of this application will include information from public submissions. Public submissions are now invited on this preliminary assessment report.
