Competition and Consumer Amendment (Gift Cards) Bill 2018
The Government recently conducted public consultation on an exposure draft of the Competition and Consumer Amendment (Gift Cards) Bill 2018 and explanatory materials.
The Bill would:
- mandate minimum three year expiry dates for gift cards;
- require gift cards to display expiry dates; and
- ban post-purchase fees on gift cards.
It would also specify penalties for non‑compliance and create a regulation-making power.
