In an address to Master Builders Australia today, ACCC Deputy Chair Dr Michael Schaper said that the ACCC and its state and territory fair trading counterparts are engaging with building regulators to encourage safety-based procurement practices in the building product sector.
The ACCC is publishing a voluntary recall of the 15,000 ‘Inside Out’ illuminated cups that were sold as part of a promotion. The products were sold at Event Cinemas in NSW, QLD, SA, WA, ACT and NT between 17 June 2015 and 12 July 2015.
The operator of the Spend a Penny stores has been prosecuted and ordered to pay a total of $4,540 for supplying baby toys that failed mandatory safety standards following an inspection by the state’s consumer watchdog.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is concerned that many unsuspecting home and business owners have degrading Infinity electrical cables installed in their premises, despite a nationwide recall of the dangerous product last year.
