ACCC Chairman Rod Sims has outlined the Commission's compliance and enforcement priorities for 2015. The top priorities include:

  • monitoring truth in advertising
  • improving online businesses' responsiveness to consumer complaints about either the product itself or delivery
  • advocating for the court to impose penalties at a level which achieves both specific and general deterrence, and
  • release of industry codes, for example the introduction of a Code of Conduct to address unfair practices in the grocery sector.
