NOT-FOR-PROFIT LAW'S RESPONSE TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S INTERIM REPORT OF THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW
Not-for-profit Law was pleased to provide a response to some of the questions posed in the Federal Government's Interim Report of the Review of the Australian Consumer Law. In our submission we:
- agree with the proposal for regulator guidance that clearly sets out how the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) currently applies to the activities of charities and other not-for-profits including fundraising activities, making a number of recommendations on how this could be achieved (pages 5-9)
- explain how inconsistencies and out-of-date fundraising laws create regulatory gaps and we recommend minor amendments to the ACL to explicitly apply a limited number of provisions to fundraising activities (pages 9-10), as an important step in clarifying the application of the ACL to fundraising activities
- explain how an extended ACL could facilitate reforms of state and territory fundraising regulation, especially if supported by ACL regulator guidance and a single voluntary code applicable to all fundraisers and all types of fundraising (pages 12-20).
