WA franchising legislation off the cards
Written on the 18 November 2010 by Fiona Taylor
The Western Australia (WA) Liberals moved to reject state-based legislation to regulate the franchise sector, yesterday.
“They will no longer have to face the prospect of regulatory duplication and additional compliance burdens that could result from separate WA-based franchising legislation.”
Recent Franchise Regulation Reform
Earlier this year the Australian Government introduced franchise sector regulation reforms.
“Like all significant reforms, these changes need time to bed down and we should allow a proper period of time to evaluate their effects,” Senator Sherry said.
“To do this, and to provide the sector with stability and confidence, the Government doesn’t intend to review the code again before 2013.”
Centre Director Professor Lorelle Frazer said she also supports a national approach to Australian franchise regulations and stability in the sector.
