The ACCC.

You’ve heard of them. And you’ve heard the stories of companies getting into hot water with the Commission.

Maybe that’s left you with the mental image of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) as a mysterious regulator body that swoops in and punishes unscrupulous companies on behalf of the little guys.  Or maybe you see them as the group that protects you, as an individual consumer, from the ‘Corporations’ in ‘Big Industry’.

This means that all businesses need to ensure they have a comprehensive understanding of Australian Consumer Law and how the regulation of it may affect their operations. Breaches of the Competition and Consumer Act can easily result in severe costs for your company.
