The Product Safety Australia website contains information on product safety issues affecting consumers, including product recalls, and is managed by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on behalf of Commonwealth and state and territory regulators.
The ACCC has recently launched a dedicated resource on baby product safety issues, the Your First Steps website.
The ACCC's role is to identify and address the risk of serious injury and death from safety hazards in consumer products.
Product safety priorities
The ACCC Product Safety Priorities policy sets out the principles adopted by the ACCC for prioritising and addressing product safety risks.
How Product Safety Australia can help
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 information 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.
