On 15 May 2014, the ACCC issued a draft determination proposing to authorise, for five years, royalty managers for plant breeders to collectively negotiate with grain buyers when they engage to collect royalties on their behalf. The proposed authorisation allows Seedvise, as an agent for royalty managers, to enter into collective negotiations with individual grain buyers.

The ACCC considers that the authorisation will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the end point royalty (EPR) system by reducing costs for royalty managers and farmers, increasing EPR collection rates, and allowing plant breeders to focus more resources on breeding new and more productive varieties.
