The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is a Commonwealth agency whose role is to enforce the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 for the benefit of all Australians.
The ACCC has recognized that Indigenous Australians, especially those living in remote areas, continue to face challenges asserting their consumer rights. Our Indigenous ‘Your Rights Mob’ consumer protection project is designed to:
- Build partnerships with Indigenous communities and other support agencies
- Help inform and empower Indigenous consumers to stand up for their consumer rights.
- Help the ACCC detect more breaches of the law at an earlier stage.
The ACCC is also looking to increase its awareness of communities and the challenges that occur. To do this we rely on people to contact us on businesses or individuals that might be visiting communities and don’t properly explain the terms and conditions of contracts, mislead people about the price of products or sell products that don’t work as advertised. Chances are if your community has been affected then others have too!
A Facebook page has been created for Indigenous consumers where we make regular updates interesting facts about consumer rights, answer questions, keep people informed on issues and ask for assistance. We also have some great videos on product safety, mobile phone contracts, door to door sales, scams and direct debits. Please check us out at www.facebook.com/ACCCYourRightsMob/
If you have any questions, concerns or want to make a complaint please give the ACCC a call on 1300 303 143, or by going to the ‘Contact Us’ tab on the ACCC website.
