Analysis of Selected Countries: Australia
Abstract:In Australia, the Trade Practices Act 1974 (TPA) sets out the functions of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the agency principally responsible for consumer protection at the federal level. No specific provisions address consumer education. There are, however, provisions describing the functions of the ACCC in relation to dissemination of information, law reform and research (Section 28).
