(i)    ensuring that the security interest is enforceable, perfected and otherwise effective; and

(ii)   enabling Supplier to apply for any registration, or give any notification, in connection with the security interest so that it has the priority required by Supplier; and

(iii) enabling Supplier to exercise powers in connection with the security interest.

(c)        The Customer and Supplier agree that they will not disclose any of the information set out in section 275(1) of the PPSA in relation to this Agreement or any security interest created under this Agreement to any person (except that Supplier may do so where required due to the operation of section 275(7) of the PPSA, in connection with any assignment of this Agreement by the Supplier or in accordance with another provision of this Agreement).

(d)       The Customer undertakes to:

(i)     execute any document and perform any action at the request or direction of Supplier necessary or desirable for:

(1)     the registration of any financing statement or financing charge statement by Supplier;

(2)     the prompt and accurate filing, lodgement or registration of any form, document or information in the PPSA Register;
