This Guide to the Regulations has been designed to provide Tenants, Tenant Employees and other Market Users with a summary of the operating rules enforced at this Site. This Guide is not intended to replace the Regulations nor does it provide an exhaustive overview of all of the rules described in the Regulations. BRISBANE MARKETS® REGULATIONS: A GUIDE

It does set out the key operating requirements that apply to the access-controlled precinct of the Brisbane Markets®. BML has the overarching duty of care to promote safety, manage Pedestrian and Vehicle traffic and ensure a clean work Site in all areas not tenanted or rented (Common Areas). However, Tenants are responsible at law for providing a safe workplace in their Tenancy Areas which includes a requirement for Tenants to develop their own Traffic Management Plans (TMP) in connection with their business operations at this Site. Note, there are a number of capitalised terms used in this Guide. These terms have the same meaning as the terms defined in Section 13 – Definitions - in the Regulations. Please refer to the Brisbane Markets® Regulations for the complete operating and traffic management rules that apply at this Site.

5. ACCESS RULES Access to the Brisbane Markets® is conditional upon your acceptance to comply with and be bound by the General Terms and Conditions of Entry (see Schedule 4) and the Regulations. BML engages a team of Authorised Officers to administer the Regulations at this Site and provide direction and guidance to Market Users as required. It is a condition of entry to comply with all directions given by Authorised Officers.

GENERAL ACCESS REQUIREMENTS

VEHICLE ACCESS There are four Vehicle boom-gated entrances into this Site shown in the map and table on the following page. BML has introduced Licence Plate Recognition (LPR) Technology at the boom-gated entrances to the Brisbane Markets® which provides automated entry to Vehicles registered with BML for LPR Site access. The driver and any passenger(s) in LPR registered Vehicles must all be BML Site access approved, that is, they must hold a valid Access Card. Contact BML’s Site Services Office for more information on registering your Vehicle for LPR Site access. Where Vehicles are not registered for LPR Site access, if you have been issued with an Access Card that permits Vehicle access, this card may be swiped at the proximity reader at each boomgated entrance. Drivers who are not BML Site access approved will need to advise an Authorised Officer why they require entry to the Site. If access is required for the delivery of Goods, drivers will need to submit a manifest of those Goods to an Authorised Officer as a condition of entry.

PEDESTRIAN ACCESS There are five main Pedestrian access gates / turnstiles at the Brisbane Markets®. Pedestrian access through the boom-gated entrances is unsafe and therefore, prohibited.

You are required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including, as a minimum, a “HiVis” Vest and leather enclosed shoes. Businesses at the Brisbane Markets® may require their employees to wear additional PPE.

The Map of the Brisbane Markets® on the following page shows the location of the Vehicle entrances (blue) and the Pedestrian entrances (green).

PPE must be worn while you are in the Common Areas of the Markets or while driving a Forklift, golf buggy or other open Vehicle.

Site Inductions must be completed by: Tenants, Tenant Employees, Forklift Operators, Buyers and Service Providers before they are permitted to access the Brisbane Markets® and, thereafter, once every 12 months.

It is not necessary to wear PPE: • inside a Tenancy or a Vehicle unless your employer requires you to do so; or • if you are a member of the general public entering this Site during the General Public Entry Days (10:00 am to 11:30 am on Thursdays and Fridays [excluding public holidays]). All children under the age of 15 entering this Site must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.

If BML has reason to believe that a person has applied for Tenant Employee access to either get early access to the Central Trading Area so as to buy Goods outside of Trading Hours or to conduct their own business interests, we will ask for evidence that the Tenant Employee is a legitimate employee. If we are not satisfied with the legitimacy of employment, the application for an Access Card may not be approved or, if already issued, may be cancelled. Tenants must keep BML notified of staff changes and return any Access Cards from former employees. Former Tenants and Tenant Employees must not keep their Access Card for ongoing access to this Site.

BUYER ACCESS Buyers will be issued with an Access Card when an application form has been completed and that application is endorsed by Brismark. Buyers must also complete a Site Induction. Ongoing Buyer access to this Site is subject to Buyers completing an annual Buyer registration, Site Induction and, where relevant, a Forklift Safety Course. Buyers who purchase Goods from Selling Floor Tenants may consolidate same: • in a CUA Parking Bay licensed to the Buyer; • under a Tenancy Awning with the prior consent of the Tenant; • within a Tenancy Area (100 sqm or less) with the prior consent of the Tenant. Buyers are not permitted to consolidate their Goods on the Common Area at the Brisbane Markets®. Note that Buyers must exit the Markets by 12:00 pm each Trading Day. Buyers must only purchase Goods from a Selling Floor Tenant. Any other purchase arrangement is not compliant with the Regulations.

SERVICE PROVIDER ACCESS Service Providers who require regular access to the Brisbane Markets® in order to supply their services to Tenants and others will need to apply for Site access approval. Only those Service Providers who have been granted with BML’s conditional consent to access this Site may provide services to Tenants. However, Service Providers who supply consultancy services only (eg: bookkeeping, accountancy, IT) to Tenants are exempt from this requirement. Service Providers must not carry out any works in Tenancy areas including building work, alterations

TENANT COMMERCIAL VEHICLES Tenant and Tenant Employees may park their Tenant Commercial Vehicles (TCVs) inside their Tenancy Areas, in designated TCV parking areas, or, during Trading Hours, in the Selling Floor Loading Zones. Tenants who own or control five or more TCVS must prepare, submit to BML and implement a Fleet Management Plan which describes where and how TCVs will be parked and the times during which they will be parked at the Brisbane Markets®. Tenant Fleet Management Plans are subject to BML’s approval and may be subject to change at the request of BML.

HEAVY VEHICLES (19 m AND LONGER) Vehicle operators must not park Heavy Vehicles on the Common Areas in the Brisbane Markets® unless authorised to do so by an Authorised Officer. Heavy Vehicles may on a short-term basis be parked in the truck holding areas as shown on the Site map attached to Schedule 1 on page 15 of this Guide.

9. TRAFFIC RULES – CENTRAL TRADING AREA (CTA) TRAFFIC RULES - GENERAL BML has introduced new traffic controls in the CTA to separate Pedestrians from Vehicles, including Forklifts, so far as this is practicably possible. These traffic controls include Pedestrian crossings, shared zones and Pedestrian only access on CTA Footpaths from 6:00 am to 8:00 am from Monday to Friday. In addition, new line marking has been applied to the CTA to define: • Tenant Trading Out Areas • Licensed Tenant Display / Consolidation Areas

6

BRISBANE MARKETS® REGULATIONS: A GUIDE

• Licensed Tenant Forklift Work Areas • Licensed Buyer Car Parking Bays The map on the following page provides a detailed overview of the traffic controls and line marking that applies to the CTA.

CTA UNLOADING SERVICES There are two Unloading Service Providers who are licensed to use the undercover area of the CTA from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am (the Unloading Hours). Each of the Unloading Service Providers is responsible for the management and direction of Vehicles being loaded and unloaded at the CTA during the Unloading Hours.

CTA PEDESTRIANS Pedestrians are required to keep to the Pedestrian Footpaths unless they are crossing from one CTA Building to another or are accessing their Vehicle in a Licensed Buyer Parking Bay. Pedestrians have right of way on Pedestrian Crossings and must use the Crossings between Building D and Buildings B and C to move between these Selling Floors. Where Pedestrians need to cross the Roads and Parking Bays between Buildings B and C, they will enter a “Shared Zone” (marked by an ochre border and shaded in ochre in the map on page 8) once they leave the Pedestrian Footpath. A Shared Zone is an area that is used by both Pedestrians and Vehicles. Pedestrians have right of way in a Shared Zone. Vehicle operators (including Forklift Operators) are responsible for avoiding any Vehicle / Pedestrian collisions. However, Pedestrians must take due care while they are in the Shared Zone.

CTA SELLING FLOOR TENANTS During Trading Hours, Selling Floor Tenants in Buildings B, C and D are each licensed to: • Trade out to the trading boundary line adjacent to their Tenancy Area; • Display and consolidate Goods in the linemarked Display / Consolidation Area; and • Use the line-marked Forklift Work Area to manage Goods. Selling Floor Tenants must: • keep the Pedestrian Footpath clear at all times; and • clear and clean the Licensed Areas at the end of Trading Hours.

CTA BUYERS Buyers who are authorised for early entry may enter the Brisbane Markets® from 6:00 am. Otherwise, Buyer entry is from 7:00 am. Buyers who are licensed to park in the CTA Licensed Buyer Parking Bays, may occupy their Licensed Parking Bay from 6:00 am (if authorised for early entry) to 11:00 am to consolidate and load Goods consigned to their Bay, and to conduct Buying. Buyers who are not licensed to park in the CTA Licensed Buyer Parking Bays have the option of parking: • in a Parking Bay that is licensed to them outside of the CTA; or • in a Selling Floor Loading Zone at the rear of the Selling Floor Buildings; or • the tram tracks on a short-term basis.

Vehicles parking in Selling Floor Loading Zones must not be parked over the Pedestrian Walkways, Forklift Work Areas or Roads.

CTA GENERAL PUBLIC ENTRY DAYS Members of the General Public are permitted to buy from the CTA Selling Floor Tenants on Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. The Brisbane Markets® is a working industrial Site. Accordingly, all public access to these Markets must be coordinated by Authorised Officers who are also trained traffic controllers. Members of the general public must comply with all directions from Authorised Officers. The General Public must observe the Traffic Control rules in the table on the following page.

VEHICLES IN THE CTA The speed limitation in the CTA is 10 km/h. Remedial Actions under the Regulations apply to non-compliance with this speed limit. Schedule 3 on page 17 shows the extent of the CTA precinct.

10. TRAFFIC RULES – WAREHOUSE PRECINCT

• Remain aware of any Vehicles entering or leaving Loading Zones and Warehouse entrances when walking past these areas; • Not use mobile phones or other electronic equipment while walking in the Warehouse Precinct.

WAREHOUSE PRECINCT – SPEED LIMIT All Vehicles must comply with the 20 km/h speed limit within the Warehouse Precinct. Schedule 3 on page 17 shows the extent of the Warehouse Precinct. BML’s Authorised Officers conduct regular radar checks on Vehicle speeds at this Site. Remedial actions may apply to any noncompliance with this Site’s speed limits.

TRAFFIC FLOWS There are a number of one-way systems on Roads in the Warehouse Precinct. Where there are oneway traffic flows, Forklift Operators are permitted to drive against the one-way traffic flow using designated Contraflow lanes where these are available.

PEDESTRIAN RULES

Buildings R, M and L

Within the Warehouse Precinct, Pedestrians must use: • Pedestrian Crossings to cross Roads where these are available. • Pedestrian Walkways to walk through the Warehouse Precinct where these are available.

The Road between Building R and Buildings M / L is under review. Currently, there is a one-way system between Buildings R and M / L. However, the Road reverts to dual carriageway at the intersection so as to provide smaller Vehicles access to the Parking Bays on either side of the Road.

In the event that these controls are not available, Pedestrians must use due care to cross Roads and walk through the Warehouse Precinct and must: • When walking on Roads with two-way traffic flows, walk in a direction facing oncoming traffic wherever possible;

All Vehicles must take due care when driving along this section of Road and should access the Buildings on either side of this Road from the West only.

DELIVERY RULES Drivers of Vehicles delivering Goods to Tenants at this Site must: • Not congest Roads, exclusion zones, Forklift Work Areas, Loading Zones or Docks while waiting for their Vehicles to be loaded or unloaded. • Park their Vehicles in the Truck Holding Areas (See Site map attached to Schedule 1 on page 15 of this Guide) until a Loading Dock or Loading Zone becomes available at the Tenancy in question. • Not park their Vehicles / Trailers in the Truck Holding Areas for more than 8 hours in any 24-hour period. All B-Double Vehicles entering the Brisbane Markets® must be split in the Truck Holding Area into their respective A and B trailers. Only one trailer may be unloaded at loading docks or in the CTA (after 10:00 pm and before 4:00 am) at any one time. “A trailers” must either have covered skid rails or barrier protection. Tenants are responsible for managing Goods being loaded or unloaded at their Tenancy Areas and do need to ensure that Vehicle Operators comply with the above delivery rules.

UNLOADING RULES There are three licensed Unloading Services at the Brisbane Markets® which are authorised by BML to unload and deliver consigned Goods to Tenants of the Brisbane Markets®. No other party is authorised to unload Goods from Vehicles onto BML’s common area and then deliver those Goods to multiple tenants. The Unloading Services are responsible for managing Vehicles that are being loaded or unloaded in Licensed Unloading Areas and do need to ensure that Vehicle Operators comply with the Regulations. The Unloading Services must not unload Goods that will be collected either directly or indirectly by Buyers.

SECURED LOADS All Vehicles must have secured loads when being driven on any Road.
