Water trading - a guide to your rights

This publication is a comprehensive guide that will assist irrigators to understand their fair trading rights when dealing with brokers and exchanges.

The guide includes:

  • tips for irrigators when looking for a broker or exchange
  • examples of conduct that is likely to contravene Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (the CCA)
  • information about remedies and penalties for breaches of the CCA
  • steps to resolve a dispute with a broker or exchange.

The content of this guide was accurate at the time of publication, however, some laws have been amended since publication. Irrigators should review current legislation to ensure that they are aware of their rights and obligations under the CCA and the Australian Consumer Law.
