On 30 October 2009 the Commonwealth Consumer Affairs Advisory Council (CCAAC) presented the Minister for Competition Policy and Consumer Affairs, the Hon Dr Craig Emerson MP, with its report Consumer rights: Reforming statutory implied conditions and warranties.
The report is result of a review of statutory implied conditions and warranties announced by the Government on 12 March 2009. CCAAC engaged in an extensive public consultation process in developing its report.
The report is being used to inform the development of the Australian Consumer Law, led by the Ministerial Council on Consumer Affairs (MCCA). MCCA considered CCAAC's report at its meeting in Perth on 4 December 2009. For further information please see the communiqué from the MCCA meeting, at www.consumerlaw.gov.au.
