Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2012
32 Productivity Commission report on the impact of COAG reforms In its submission to the Productivity Commission on the development of the National Rail Safety Law, ALC said it was concerned that the effectiveness of the law could be substantially reduced if jurisdictional regulators were allowed to develop their own cultures, interpret the law in different ways, or develop their own enforcement priorities. ALC argued that the benefits of a national scheme would be best delivered if there was a single national regulator responsible for developing policy and delivering services. Maritime Safety ALC noted in its submission on the draft Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Bill that as the delegated agency model is proposed for the new maritime safety scheme, it is imperative that the text of any service level agreements between the national regulator and jurisdictional regulators appear on the national regulator's website. This is to ensure all interested parties know exactly what services are being delivered by jurisdictional regulators and the services the jurisdiction is expected to deliver. Other ALC events and advocacy Decision Makers Dinners (DMD) ALC's series of Decision Makers Dinners for 2011 were a running success, with dinners held with transport Ministers in all states. ALC is building on the success of these events in 2012. The now titled ALC Executive Boardroom Lunches -- aim to attract a selection of senior industry figures from ALC member companies, as well as a select number of government bureaucrats, to join in the discussion with the Minister. The lunches are run under 'Chatham House' rules to encourage free discussion, creating a stimulating and enjoyable atmosphere for all participants. ALC hopes this new format will strengthen the important dialogue constantly required between industry and government. ALC Chairman's Dinner ALC hosted its Chairman's Dinner in November 2011 in the Boardroom of the National Press Club in Canberra. The Hon. Anthony Albanese, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, attended, along with ALC Chairman Don Telford and a selected number of senior executives from ALC member companies. This is an ALC Member event only and is held annually. ALC ADVOCACY AND POLICY SUBMISSIONS
