Australian Consumer Law website launched and draft regulations released

by Hilary Kincaid 27. September 2010 10:41

The new site, www.consumerlaw.gov.au, was launched on Friday 24 September by the Hon David Bradbury MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer.

From 1 January 2011, there will be a single national consumer law. This reform is a co-operative effort between the Commonwealth and the states and territories, through the Ministerial Council on Consumer Affairs.

The site gives information about:

• how the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) is being implemented;

• how the ACL will be enforced by Australia’s consumer law regulators;

• consultation on draft ACL regulations and draft guides on the ACL; and

• consumer policy in Australia and internationally.

The Treasury has released a draft of the Competition and Consumer (Australian Consumer Law) Amendment Regulations 2010 for consultation. Comments are due by 13 October 2010.
