Access card common expiry – what you need to know
To streamline processes for your business at the Melbourne Market, all access cards have a common annual expiry date of 30 April. This common annual expiry date applies to all access cards, regardless of the month they were issued.
Over the next week, all business principals will receive a letter from the MMA listing all active access cards linked currently to their business. Using the form enclosed with the letter, business principals are required to advise the MMA if any access cards need to be removed from their business (due to employee turnover for instance) to ensure access card renewal invoices are accurate when issued. Forms must be returned no later than 28 February.
For further information, contact the Customer Service Centre between 4:00am to 11:00am Monday to Friday on 9258 6123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
