The ACCC's role is to identify and address the risk of serious injury and death from safety hazards in consumer products.
The Product Safety Australia website is managed by the ACCC on behalf of Commonwealth, state and territory product safety regulators.
The website provides a single entry point for recalled products, directing consumers to the appropriate regulator. It also provides a range of safety information across various product categories, as well as enabling consumers to report unsafe products.
Businesses can find out about any laws, bans, standards or restrictions that may apply when supplying products in Australia. It also enables businesses to submit product recalls, mandatory injury reports and other information required by law.
To ensure products work safely and are compliant with the Australian Consumer Law, the Australian product safety system relies on the cooperation of consumers, suppliers, and government agencies.
