Description Businesses will have new responsibilities when the Australian Consumer Law comes into force on 1 January 2011. The new law replaces key sections of the Trade Practices Act and the fair trading acts of all states and territories.

Key changes include:
• Suppliers and manufacturers must honour new guarantees that automatically apply to goods and services.
• New restrictions on door-to-door sales and other face-to-face marketing
• New requirements for contracts - including information about ‘cooling off’ and bans on unfair contract terms
• Suppliers are required to report products which have been associated with serious injury or death
