Undertaking

Myer Pty Ltd supplied the Bloc and Stone ranges of sunglasses which did not comply with the labelling requirements specified in the mandatory consumer product safety standard for sunglasses based on AS/NZS 1067:2003 Sunglasses and fashion spectacles (Sunglasses Standard).

Tests commissioned by the ACCC on a pair of Square sunglasses and a pair of Mumma sunglasses from the Bloc range of sunglasses concluded that they also do not comply with certain performance requirements of the Sunglasses Standard. Further tests commissioned by Myer’s supplier indicated that some pairs of Mumma and Square sunglasses passed the prescribed performance requirements of the Sunglasses Standard while other pairs failed.

The labelling on all the sunglasses represented that the sunglasses complied with the Sunglasses Standard. Myer Pty Ltd has provided court enforceable undertakings to the ACCC that it will:

  • ensure for a period of 3 years that goods supplied by Myer that are subject to a prescribed safety and/or information standard under the TPA comply with the relevant standard; and
  • implement a Trade Practices Compliance Program.
