Australian Consumer Law Consultation
By: Sky Accountants
Consumer guarantees are intended to provide consumers, suppliers and manufacturers with a way of addressing problems with goods and services by establishing a minimum level of protection for all consumer goods and services across Australia.
The intention of the Treasury consultation is to consider stronger incentives for businesses to comply with their obligations to provide consumers with a repair, replacement, or refund where there is a problem.
Additionally, the supplier indemnification options are intended to provide stronger incentives for manufacturers to reimburse sellers for costs incurred where the manufacturer is at fault.
Any changes made could have notable implications for manufacturers and suppliers of goods and services covered by the ACL.
Interested parties are encouraged to consider making a submission prior to the 11 February deadline.
