Summary

On 17 October 2019, Stanley Black and Decker Australia Pty Ltd (SBD) lodged a resale price maintenance (RPM) notification for its Dewalt branded power tools, accessories and attachments (the Notified Products). SBD proposed to stipulate a minimum advertised price for the Notified Products below which authorised SBD dealers could not advertise to sell the notified products (the Notified Conduct).

On 4 June 2020, the ACCC issued SBD with a final notice revoking the RPM notification. As a result, from 5 July 2020, SBD does not have statutory protection from legal action to engage in the Notified Conduct.
