5. INFORMATION AND TIMELINES FOR NEGOTIATION
This section of the Code places obligations on Service Providers and Users to
disclose to the market information relevant to obtaining access to Services.
Service Providers are required to:

Prospective Users who request it, an Information Package containing general
information on the terms and conditions of access and explaining how to make a
specific access request;
· respond within 30 days to a specific
request for access; and

and timing of that unutilised Contracted Capacity. The User may notify the
Service Provider of its unutilised Contracted Capacity so that it is included
on the Service Provider’s public register.
