What’s this about?

The existing Fair Trading Regulation 2012 will be repealed on 1 September 2019.

NSW Fair Trading is proposing to remake the regulation, with changes, to improve and enhance the regulatory framework. The proposed regulation supports the Fair Trading Act 1987.

The new regulation will: 

  • provide information standards relating to fuel price signs at service stations and funeral service providers
  • mandate the industry code of conduct for motor vehicle insurers and repairers 
  • provide some exceptions to gift card expiry date requirements 
  • update the penalties for offences under the Australian Consumer Law and the Fair Trading Act
