Many aspects of the Australian Consumer Law can be relevant to the everyday activities of individuals and businesses, such as misleading and deceptive conduct, unfair contract terms or consumer guarantees. If you run a business that sells, markets or advertises to consumers, it is essential for you to understand your obligations under the Australian Consumer Law, the steps you should take to comply with the legislation, as well as the consequences for non-compliance.
