A recall is:

  • the permanent removal of a good or a component of a good from supply or use, by return to the supplier; or
  • the temporary removal of a good, or a component of a good, from supply or use for the purpose of bringing the good or component into conformance with a relevant safety standard or to otherwise make it safe.

This can be achieved voluntarily by the supplier, or in response to an order by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer responsible for competition and consumer policy.
