ACCC Releases Consumer Product Safety Guide

Consumer Product Safety Guide by ACCC

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has released a guide for businesses who supply products to Australian consumers online.

The guide lists some best practice tips for businesses, as well as listing certain obligations that online businesses should be aware of such as how to check if a product is banned or noncompliant in Australia. Another issue raised is the use of poor labelling online, such as those that age-grade products for children, or provide a list of ingredients.

The 8-page guide is a must read for any business that is selling online and will assist online retailers in ensuring they comply with Australian consumer law.
