Under the Australian Consumer Law, mandatory consumer product safety standards (also known as mandatory standards) are introduced when considered reasonably necessary to prevent or reduce the risk of injury.
This supplier guide provides a summary of the mandatory requirements for the supply of all retail tobacco products sold in Australia, that are made for human consumption, be it smoking, sucking, chewing or snuffing.
This guidance is to outline the position of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on compliance and enforcement under the compulsory Takata airbag recall with respect to written-off vehicles under active recall.
Under the Recall Notice, a supplier is the first person to supply a vehicle with an Affected Takata Airbag Inflator into Australia. A supplier will usually be able to contact vehicle owners through the supplier’s dealer network.
The ACCC performs its product safety work in line with the annual priorities set by the ACCC each year. This policy sets out the principles adopted by the ACCC for prioritising and addressing product safety risks in 2018.
Parallel, sometimes referred to as ‘grey’, importers of new and used motor vehicles in Australia have key obligations under the Recall Notice. Such importers sell legal, non-counterfeit vehicles outside normal distribution channels and may have no relationship to the producer of the vehicle.
