Consumer Rights Act 2015

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 is a major overhaul and consolidation of consumer protection law and received Royal Assent in March this year.

It is expected, for the most part, to come into force on 1 October 2015.

The Act replaces eight existing laws, including the Sale of Goods Act 1979, the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982, the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.

Schools, as service providers, may wish to consider what the new Act includes. Broadly, it covers implied terms, remedies in consumer contracts, unfair contract terms and enforcement of consumer protection law.
