Learn More About  the Role of ACCC over a Delicious Italian Dinner!

Note: Price includes complimentary beer, wine and soft drink on table & delicious Italian Buffet dinner!
In 1987 a group of local businesspeople got together to form the Smithfield-Wetherill Park Chamber of Commerce. One of those founding members, Robert Savell from Hydrocare Pools, is still with us 30 years later and we will ask him about how the chamber has changed over the years.
We will celebrate three decades of representing employers and helping businesses to grow. Cumberland Business Chamber, as we are now known, is focused these days on the largest employer in the region, the industrial sector, and all of the support networks that service this sector, and we attract people from as far away as the Sydney CBD, Macarthur region, Sutherland Shire and Central Coast.
Guest Speaker: The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC).
ACCC promotes competition and fair trade in markets to benefit consumers, businesses, and the community. They also regulate national infrastructure services. Their primary responsibility is to ensure that individuals and businesses comply with Australian competition, fair trading, and consumer protection laws.
We will discover more about this organisation which is the ‘watch dog’ going up against the biggest corporations in the nation to ensure they ‘play fair’.
Examples of recent ACCC cases include:
  • Going to the Federal Court alleging that giant waste management company JJ Richards has eight clauses in its small business contract which are unfair under the Australian Consumer Law…
  • Publishing guidelines for retailers on how to advertise speeds for NBN Broadband services…
  • Going to the Federal Court against ticket reseller viagogo AG alleging it is breaching Australian Consumer Law…
  • Advising businesses are banned from charging excessive surcharges for when customers areusing certain types of EFTPOS and credit cards…
  • Presenting a report on the petroleum industry showing that whilst average prices have dropped the retail margins remain high.
