Policy report: The consumer protection provisions of the Trade Practices Act 1974

This comprehensive report examines Australia’s consumer protection framework in light of international developments, including those from the USA, Canada, UK and European Union. The report complements the Productivity Commission’s recent Review of Australia’s Consumer Policy Framework. While the report makes many of the same recommendations as the Productivity Commission, it seeks to ensure Australia’s consumer protection framework is world’s best by making additional recommendations for reform, such as the introduction of market studies, super complaints and a general unfair trading prohibition.
