ACCC reviewing its mandatory product standards
By Gail Greatorex
The ACCC has launched a major review of its product regulations. The long-awaited changes to children's nightwear are included. There are two key aspects to consider:
Are there any aspects of the existing standard that you are having difficulty with and would like to see changed?
If these have not been addressed in the proposed changes, now is the time to raise them. And if you have suggestions on how these aspects can be addressed, you should put them forward.
How will the changes proposed in the review impact your products and your business?
This can take a bit of time and thought, but it’s worth doing. Firstly, it’s your chance to influence the policy. And secondly, it will give you an idea of what changes may be coming and start planning ahead.
