Change of Auditor

Brambles Industries PLC
24 May 2002


In the last Annual Report Brambles stated that it would put its external audit
to tender and would confine the tendering parties to its current auditors, 
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu,PricewaterhouseCoopers and Andersen.

The Board has today approved the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers as
auditors starting with the audit for 2001/02 year.  The necessary regulatory 
approvals have been obtained.

In announcing the appointment of the new auditor, the Board confirmed its policy
relating to the performance of non-audit work by auditors.  Non audit work is 
prohibited where independence may be compromised or conflicts arise.  Any 
proposals for the performance of non audit related work by 
PricewaterhouseCoopers will require prior consultation with and approval of the 
Audit Committee.  Consultancy, IT implementation and internal audit work will 
not be performed by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
