Consumer law reform in Australia: Contemporary and Comparative Constructive Criticism
AbstractNation-wide consumer law reform has finally emerged on Australia’s legislative agenda. This article first introduces some broader context, advocating a comparative perspective that allows Australia to re-harmonise based on emerging global standards. Part II focuses on additional duties to notify regulators of serious product-related accidents. Part III presents a comparative analysis of new rules governing unfair terms for consumer contracts. Part IV responds to the Review of Statutory Implied Conditions and Warranties. Part V concludes with a response to the parallel reform underway for a National Consumer Credit Protection Act.
