As signalled in September, a Fair Trading Amendment Bill was introduced to Parliament today as a result of the Government’s work on unfair commercial practices and the review of consumer credit law.
As discussed in our previous Consumer Law Alert (see here), the changes mark a very significant change to New Zealand's commercial law framework, and will have far-reaching impacts on how businesses negotiate and contract with one another. There will be a further opportunity for affected parties to make submissions through the select committee process early next year.
If you have any questions about how these proposed changes could affect your business, please contact one of our experts below.
