Restrictive Trade Practices Compliance Training

Header image

This Restrictive Trade Practices (Australian Competition Law) online training module will provide staff at all levels of your organisation with a greater understanding of how competition is protected by the Competition and Consumer Act. The penalties for not complying with the law can be substantial; fines can exceed $10 million per offence for companies and can be up to half a million for individuals who are found to behave anti-competitively – and ignorance of the law is no defence against legal action! This training provides practical guidance on staying compliant with the complex laws surrounding restrictive trade practices.
