The franchisor compliance manual

Enforcement and compliance

If you do not comply with the Code, you will be in breach of the Act. The ACCC is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Code and the Act.

Failure to comply with the provisions of the Code may result in the ACCC taking enforcement action against you or your business. The Act also allows affected parties (e.g. prospective and existing franchisees) to take legal action for a breach of the Code.
