Australian Consumer Law – and farewell TPA

The Trade Practices Amendment (Australian Consumer Law) Bill 2009 passed through Parliament on Wednesday 17 March and is awaiting Royal Assent.  On the same day the phase 2 of the Australian Consumer Law amendments (Trade Practices Amendment (Australian Consumer Law) (No 2) Bill 2009) was introduced into the House of Representatives.

Nestled in the monster bill, Schedule 5, s 2 includes the name change: “Omit “Trade Practices Act 1974 “, substitute “Competition and Consumer Act 2010“”
