The 30 minute seminar will provide you with tips to get the body you’ve always wanted plus you’ll see results from the transformations of Corey Reeves and Rachel Vanderzee’s and learn how they achieved them.

All attendees at the seminar will be given a special offer for the highly-sought-after MRT Transformation Challenge.

Infringements– get the facts.

To ensure the design intent of the Market is realised for safety, cleanliness and efficency, we have Operating Rules. The Operating Rules are enforced through a demerit point system – similar to that used by VicRoads for driver licences – which links the behaviour of employees to the employer’s record. Ultimately, employers are responsible for the actions and behaviours of their employees on Market land.

In addition to demerit points, a Market business may also receive a financial infringement. These include cost recovery for damage incurred by a Market user and/or business, and associated repairs and/or labour.

To keep operating costs at a minimum, the Melbourne Market Authority has a set schedule of fees for damages and/or other operating rule breaches, such as rubbish dumping. These set fees enable prompt invoicing and ensure the costs are applied to the responsible Market business as oppose to absorbing it into the running cost of the Market which would ultimately increase costs for all Market users.

If you receive an infringement or breach, there is an appeals process as set out in Annexure B, section 5 of the Market Operating Rules.

For more information on the appeals process or to discuss an infringement, contact the MMA on 9258 6100 or email infringements@melbournemarket.com.au.
