The purpose of this book is to summarise and explain the substantive rights of consumers, and the obligations of businesses under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL). Since the first edition there have been two significant legislative developments at the Federal and State level which have been incorporated into this edition.
- The Competition and Consumer Legislation Amendment Act 2011(Cth), which amends the provisions of the ACL relating to unconscionable conduct, took effect from 1 January 2012.
- The Fair Trading Act 1999 (Vic) has been replaced by the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012 (Vic), which applies the ACL as a law of the State of Victoria.
Case law added in this edition includes the important new High Court decision in Forrest v Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
