New: Australian Consumer Law Guide for industry

Public news

This guide replaces the previous version that many members may be familiar with. The MTA was involved in the revised version and it is recommended members use this guide as a reference.

This information is relevant to:

  • Sales (including vehicles, machinery and motorcycles)
  • Service and repairs

The guide’s main focus is on consumer issues related to defects and failures (both one-off and repeated) in the sales and repairs of new and used vehicles.

It provides guidance on the legal rights and obligations created by consumer guarantees provided by the ACL and different remedies available to consumers where a dispute arises or a customer raises a complaint about a product or services.
