New carbon price claims guide
Wednesday 07 December 2011
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has released a carbon price claims guide to help you prepare for the impact of a Carbon Pricing Mechanism.
The guide can help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a business owner when deciding to pass on the cost of a carbon price. It gives information on prohibitions against making misleading, deceptive or false claims under Australian Consumer Law.
If you choose to raise your prices once a carbon price takes effect, the guide will help you avoid misrepresenting your claim and continue trading without intervention from the ACCC.
