Webinar: Proposed changes to the Australian Consumer Law (ACL)

11 May 2022

The Australian Consumer Law (ACL) has a significant impact on how businesses deal with consumers and small businesses alike. It has been an effective tool used by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to regulate the behaviour of businesses in Australia.

In this webinar partner, Ian Bloemendal and senior associate, Simon Ellis discuss some recent and proposed changes to the ACL that will change the regulatory landscape and are important considerations for any Australian business including:

  • what is a "consumer";
  • changes to the consumer guarantees;
  • the potential introduction of an "unfair practices" regime; and
  • the future of unfair contract terms.
