The Productivity Commission wrote to the Chair of the Consumer Affairs Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) Compliance and Dispute Resolution Advisory Committee (CDRAC) on 16 September 2016 seeking a range of data and information on the activities of the State and Territory Australian Consumer Law (ACL) regulators. A response was received on 11 November 2016 (which was subsequently updated).
Following this, the Commission sought further information, provided by CDRAC in a second response. Both the information requests and the final responses from CDRAC are published below.
