Product safety & standards


  • Note: This article talks of Australian Product Safety laws and regulations, as they relate to the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) so is of general interest. However it doesn’t specifically cover safety of electrical equipment which is mandated under State laws. You can find the Electrical safety regulations information at http://www.erac.gov.au/ for the laws and regulations and regulators which supplement and complement the ACL for electrical safety.

Extract from the news article below:

If you sell products Australian customers, including the sale of products online, you must meet product safety requirements under Australian Consumer Law. If you’re a supplier or manufacturer, you are legally obligated to comply with mandatory Australian safety standards and only market safe products. Mandatory standards are law, and there are penalties and consequences for selling products that do not comply.
