About this bill

This bill amends the Fair Trading Act 1986 to introduce new protections against unfair practices by prohibiting unconscionable conduct in trade and by extending the Act's existing protections against unfair contract terms in standard form consumer contracts to also apply to small trade contracts. This bill also strengthens the ability of consumers to require uninvited direct sellers to leave or not enter their property.
