Administered by: Treasury
General Comments: This instrument was made under subsection 65C(7) of the Trade Practices Act 1974 and provides for a permanent ban on goods. It was incorrectly titled as an unsafe goods notice when made. This notice was originally made under subsection 65C(7) of the Trade Practices Act 1974. Item 3 of Schedule 7 to the Trade Practices Amendment (Australian Consumer Law) Act (No. 2) 2010 (Act No. 103 of 2010) provides that this notice remains in force from 1 January 2011 as if it had been made under section 114 of the Australian Consumer Law (as set out in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Act No. 51 of 1974)).

Note: the Trade Practices Act 1974 was renamed the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 on 1 January 2011 (see item 2 of Schedule 5 to the Trade Practices Amendment (Australian Consumer Law) Act (No. 2) 2010 (Act No. 103 of 2010)).
