Australian Competition Law Review: Response to Interim Review
The submission to the Treasury in response to the Interim Report on the Australian Consumer Law Review was prepared by the Competition and Consumer Committee of the Business Law Section.
Rather than addressing all questions raised in the Interim Report, the Committee has addressed those specific issues highlighted by Consumer Affairs Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) as being of particular significance, being:
- consumer guarantees;
- product safety;
- unfair contract terms;
- unsolicited consumer agreements; and
- penalties and remedies.
Where appropriate, the Committee has referenced the relevant section or question of the Interim Report to which its response relates.
