Safety checks for online products

Myth: The Australian Government checks all products before they are sold online in Australia.

Fact: Australian and overseas businesses selling products online are responsible for ensuring they meet Australian product safety requirements. About 50 consumer products are covered by specific safety regulations. These include bicycles, children’s toys and nursery furniture. Product safety regulators monitor these products across the Australian market, including the online sector, to ensure they meet mandatory requirements. Regulators have taken action against businesses that sell unsafe products online.
