Designer Direct (SA) Pty Ltd (Designer Direct) proposed a Variation to the section 87B undertaking accepted by the ACCC on 5 October 2007.

The undertaking related to false and misleading down content claims made by Designer Direct for its 'Mahogany Summer' and 'Mahogany Winter' quilts.

The undertaking included a requirement that Designer Direct implement a trade practices compliance program with annual trade practices compliance training to be provided to all officers, employees and other persons involved in Designer Direct's business whose duties could result in them being concerned with conduct that may contravene sections 52, 53(a) and 55 of the TPA.

The annual trade practices compliance training is to be provided by a suitably qualified compliance professional or legal practitioner.

The Variation amends Designer Direct's trade practices compliance training obligation by limiting the category of Designer Direct staff required to receive the annual training to senior staff, namely, "all directors and managers" instead of the broader "all officers, employees and other persons".
