What the ACCC does

  • We have a compliance and enforcement policy that sets out the principles we adopt to achieve compliance with these laws. The policy outlines our compliance and enforcement functions, strategies and tools.
  • We provide information to help businesses implement compliance programs.
  • We may review an individual compliance program if it is part of a court enforceable undertaking.
  • We have specific tools to check businesses are complying with mandatory industry codes.

What the ACCC can't do

  • We don’t provide legal advice to business on whether their documents or practices comply with the law.
  • We don’t make formal decisions on whether a person or business has breached the law. Only the courts can do this.
  • We don’t provide legal advice on compliance programs.
  • We don’t resolve individual disputes.
