Galexia prepares submission on consumer fairness tests for ACCAN - 5 March 2010
On behalf of ACCAN, Galexia prepared a submission to the Expert Panel On Franchising And Unconscionable Conduct, established by the Government following a parliamentary inquiry into provisions of the Trade Practices Act 1974 that prohibit unconscionable conduct.
The submission proposes to reform Australia’s consumer laws by inserting a new fairness test into Section 52 of the Trade Practices Act (and all legislation that mirrors that test). This would result in Section 52 prohibiting ‘conduct that is unfair or misleading, or conduct that is likely to mislead or be unfair’.
