Emphasis is given to the consumer guarantees regime and the unfair contract terms regime. The principal provisions and changes in relation to the contractual aspects of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) are identified and summarised. The book also provides an explanation of how the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and state and territory fair trading legislation interact with the Australian Consumer Law.
