Consumer Product Safety System Review

The Commonwealth Treasury is undertaking a consultation on Improving the Effectiveness of the Consumer Product Safety System by providing an overview of the current product safety system, explaining identified problems and outlining potential reform options for feedback, including options for a General Safety Provision (GSP).

This consultation process will consider how reform of the product safety legislative framework could improve safety outcomes for consumers, enhance clarity for businesses and improve government’s ability to respond to unsafe products without imposing unnecessary costs.

Participate in the Consumer Online Survey to help capture experiences with the current system. The survey covers overall impressions and views on product safety, experiences with particular products and views on the current product safety system.

The survey closes November 30 2019.
