Franchising Code of Conduct Review consultation Update

Written on the 21 May 2014

By Michael Paul
Chairman, Franchise Council of Australia

I am pleased to report the FCA’s detailed submission in relation to the Exposure Draft of the Franchising Code of Conduct has been welcomed by the Department of Treasury. On Monday 12 May Kym De Britt and Stephen Giles flew to Canberra at the invitation of the Department to discuss our submission in detail, and continue the ongoing consultation and collaboration between the FCA and the Department.  The FCA has also met with representatives of the Minister for Small Business, Bruce Billson on several occasions.

I am now able to provide a little more clarity in relation to what we see as the likely changes to the Code, and the implementation timetable.  Please note that these are our expectations, as opposed to the official communicated view of the Government.
