ACCC jumps on unsafe trampoline practices

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is warning parents and carers about safe trampoline use after a recent survey showed that injuries are common. The study of over 650 people was conducted by Kidsafe Western Australia on behalf of the ACCC.

Nearly 40 per cent of survey respondents stated that their own child had being injured on a trampoline or they were aware of someone else’s child who had injured themselves.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) are urging parents to take immediate action to ensure their family is not exposed to the hazards posed by liquid laundry packets or capsules.

Product safety

All consumer products you supply must be safe and meet consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL). You cannot sell banned products and you must ensure that your products or product-related services comply with relevant mandatory standards before they are offered for sale. The ACL also contains two mandatory notification requirements for recalls and mandatory reporting.
