Consultations and Reviews

Productivity Commission Inquiry into Right to Repair

The Productivity Commission has released an issues paper to assist individuals and organisations to prepare submissions to the Inquiry into Right to Repair.

Right to Repair is a consumer’s ability to repair faulty goods, or access repair services, at a competitive price. This can include repair by a manufacturer, a third-party, or self-repair.

The inquiry will consider a range of issues impacting the Australian repair market, including potential barriers and enablers of greater competition.

The issues paper outlines:

  • the scope of the inquiry
  • the Commission’s procedures
  • matters about which the Commission is seeking comment and information
  • how to make a submission.

View the issues paper here.

Submissions on the issues paper are due by 01 February 2021.
