Do you supply to consumers? If so, then make sure you are complying with the new rules…

Consumer Law News | March 2012

As we previously mentioned in our News Issue for December of 2011, from 1 January 2012, all importers, suppliers and manufacturers who supply to consumers must ensure their warranties against defects comply with the new regulation 90 of the new Australian Consumer Law to avoid substantial penalties.

Warranties against defects must now include information such as how a consumer is able to claim under a warranty, who bears the cost of claiming under a warranty and what benefits are given by the warranty. The warranty must also contain a prescribed clause to comply with the new law detailing that this is in addition to other benefits and rights that consumers may have under the Australian Consumer Law. For more information and assistance in updating consumer warranties, contact us at Forum Law and we can advise you of our competitive rates.
