Exposure draft – Australian Consumer Law Regulations 2010

Treasury has released a draft of the Competition and Consumer (Australian Consumer Law) Amendment Regulations 2010 for consultation. The ACL is scheduled to commence as a law of the Commonwealth and each state and territory on 1 January 2011.

The proposed regulations cover matters such as:

  • exemptions from the unsolicited consumer agreement provisions of the ACL for certain business practices;
  • requirements for certain documents that suppliers are required to give to consumers;
  • exemptions from the requirement to report goods or product-related services associated with death, serious injury or illness.

A new website about the Australian Consumer Law has been set up by the Government at www.consumerlaw.gov.au.
