Australian Consumer Law review to consider the adequacy of consumer laws for comparator websites

Competition and Market Regulation Update


Consumer Affairs Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) will be conducting a review of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) in 2016. This is the first review of the ACL since it came into force in January 2011 and follows a review of Australia’s competition laws, policy and frameworks by the Harper Panel over the last few years. CAANZ will consider a range of issues, including some of specific relevance to the private health insurance sector.
