The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has launched an inquiry into how the state of interstate commerce operates and whether it is adequately regulated.
Key points:The ACCC wants to examine the “noise” bill, which has been introduced in Victoria and NSW for a year, to see if it will affect interstate commerceThe ACCCC is also asking whether the bill is being properly applied to consumers in AustraliaThe ACCCB has received complaints about the bill and is investigating whether it’s being applied to consumer complaintsThe federal government says it is reviewing the bill but will not be able to pass the legislation.
The Federal Government has been seeking to repeal the bill in Victoria, NSW and Queensland.
“Noise” is an amendment to the Crimes Act, which will remove existing prohibitions on noise from a number of industries including telecommunications, entertainment and publishing.
It will also remove the definition of “noisy” from the definition and make it apply to any activity that causes a disturbance or annoyance to another person.
It’s one of the most controversial bills in recent years.
Opposition MPs say it will cause a significant increase in noise in public places and will lead to greater health and safety concerns.
The ACCAC is currently investigating the bill’s effects on interstate commerce, and whether the state is adequately regulating the activities of companies.
It wants to find out if the noise bill will “serve as a barrier to innovation, as it does not allow for competition between industries”, and whether “the imposition of a maximum standard of noise pollution will cause significant and disproportionate harm to the industry concerned”.
The ACC is also investigating whether the legislation is being applied in Australia.
The government says its review will be completed before the end of the year.
