Care Label Deficiency Report

 

Breaches of the Care Labelling standards are continually being reported to DIA by our members and whilst there are significant penalties under Consumer Laws and Care Labelling standards set  by the ACCC, to date the ACCC have shown little interest in enforcing the Standards.
