Abstract:

The Standing Committee of Officials of Consumer Affairs has released a consultation regulation impact statement (RIS) on reforms based on best practice in state and territory consumer protection laws, and a new national product safety regime. These reforms are being considered as part of the development of the Australian Consumer Law. The proposals in this RIS do not reflect Australian Government policy, or the policy of any state or territory Government. The proposals are due to be presented to the Ministerial Council on Consumer Affairs for consideration on 4 December 2009.
