Consumer Claims in Western Australia

Consumer Claims in WA are regulated mainly by the Australian Consumer Law, which forms part of the Commonwealth Competition and Consumer Act 2010.  This Act came into effect at the beginning of 2011 and replaced the former Trade Practices Act 1974. 

The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 only applies to constitutional corporations, due to the fact that the Commonwealth has restricted powers under the Constitution to legislate regarding certain matters.  Consequently, many States, including Western Australia, have enacted legislation to incorporate the provisions of the Australian Consumer Law into Western Australia law.  The legislation relating to Consumer Claims in WA is the Fair Trading Act 2010
