Australian Competition and Consumer Commission
Under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), which took effect on 1 January 2011, Australi now has a national product safety system.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission along with state and territory consumer affairs agencies regulate mandatory product safety standards and bans for a variety of consumer goods which are intended to be or are likely to be for personal, domestic or household use.
