THE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT HAS BEEN PROMULGATED

 

The Consumer Protection Act has finally been promulgated. This follows the publication of Government Gazette Notice 467 of 2009, published on 29 April 2009.

Although promulgated, it will be a further 18 months before the Act is fully effective. Some of the provisions, including those providing for the establishment of the National Consumer Commission, will become effective 12 months after the Act is promulgated. As we anticipated, it will only be in the second part of 2010 that the Act will be fully effective.

We will be hosting our third seminar in July 2009. Details will be provided shortly.
