According to this particular protective shield, there is a compulsion on businesses for providing guarantee to the services and products that are being sold, hired or leased for an amount that is below 40,000 dollar and more than 40,000 dollar normally being purchases for being used in household or personal purposes. There has also been coverage of business trailers and business vehicles, no matter what their cost is, given that they are mainly utilized for the transportation of goods (Productivity Commission, 2005). These automatic guarantees should be provided by all businesses irrespective of the warranties that are being provided to the consumers or that are being sold to the consumers. If there is failure by business in delivering any kind of guarantees, there are certain rights available for the consumers; these include rights of repairing, replacing, or refunding, cancellation of services, and compensating the loss and damages. The guarantees that are provided are with respect to the services and products provided.
At times, it can be seen that these regulations and laws are not followed by certain businesses that contribute in the exploitation of the consumers. Hence, for this purpose, there are regulators available for the protection of Australian Consumers in order to enforce the performance of the businesses in an ethical manner and in accordance with the law that has been provided for the protection of the consumers (Braithwaite, 2002). In case of facing any exploitation, the consumers can refer to the Consumer Action Law Centre. The Consumer Action Law Centre is casework for consumers and organization of policy that not- for- profit as well as independent that is situated in the region of Melbourne in Australia.
