Amendments to the New Australian Product Liability Law
Office of Regulation Review submission
This submission to the Senate Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs was released in October 1992. The submission outlines some economic effects of product liability laws and then discusses each of the proposed amendments to the Trade Practices Act 1974, which were to:
- give Part VA of the Act the same extra-territorial impact as is currently given to Parts IV and V of the Act;
- delete or amend the provisions dealing with the statue of repose (subsection 75AP(2)); and
- assist plaintiffs in the discharge of the burden of proof.
