Consumer Affairs Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) today released an Interim Report calling for submissions on the Australian Consumer Law Review.
The Interim Report draws on feedback from the more than 160 submissions received on the review’s Issues Paper released on 31 March 2016, as well from face-to-face stakeholder consultations held across Australia, findings from the Australian Consumer Survey 2016 and a study into overseas consumer laws. The report identifies a range of issues and seeks views on potential options for reform.
Stakeholders are encouraged to have their say on the Interim Report which is receiving submissions until Friday 9 December 2016.
CAANZ will present consumer affairs Ministers with a Final Report by March 2017 that will make findings and present options to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Australian Consumer Law.
Further information about the review is available on the Australian Consumer Law website.
