The Commerce Commission has launched a new website for the health sector with fact sheets and quick tests to get you up to speed with competition and consumer law.
Launched in October, the website is aimed at helping the health sector understand more about competition and consumer laws and what they need to do to comply.
“We’ve been working with members of the health sector since 2012 to increase their understanding of competition and consumer law. To help achieve this, we developed a series of easy-to-understand fact sheets specifically related to the health sector,” says Fazleen Ismail, Commerce Commission Advocacy Manager.
“We published the fact sheets late last year but wanted to collect them all in one place so they would be easy to find and use. We hope this new website will do just that.”
The website is particularly relevant to those in business or practising on their own. Health sector managers and employees should also be aware of how competition and consumer laws apply to the sector.
