Compliance Pogram

The Acts administered by the Fair Trading Commission provides a range of enforcement remedies as well as the opportunity for voluntary undertakings to ensure compliance with the law, however, the Commission also wants to encourage behavioral change.

Whilst there is ongoing consumer education through various platforms to encourage behavioural change, it is also essential that businesses are encouraged to be compliant with the laws and to see the benefit that it brings to their businesses. A more proactive approach was proposed through the introduction of a compliance program in 2019 – as a voluntary exercise or as part of a legal undertaking where the business can be required to implement a compliance program to prevent further contraventions.
