The replacement of the Trade Practices Act with the Australian Consumer Law, together with amendments to the Corporations Law, have had the effect of broadening the scope of the ACCC’s field of enquiry.
This has opened more business people to substantial penalties from prosecution for breaches of the Consumer Law.
Owners and Directors need to be aware of the obligations under the Consumer Law and take positive actions to minimise their risk of prosecution or even adverse publicity resulting from the Commission initiating enquiries into the practices of their business.
Staff at the Qld Law Group have broad experience assisting businesses, large and small, in a variety of industries. Why not take advantage of this experience to avoid the minefield of an ACCC prosecution?
