WA Inquiry into Franchising Bill Report Tabled: Not Supported

WA Inquiry into Franchising Legislation Report Tabled: Not Supported

24 June 2011

[From Legislative Assembly Economics and Industry Standing Committee Media Release]

In its report tabled today, the Committee recommended that the Franchising Bill 2010, introduced to the Western Australian Legislative Assembly on 13 October 2010, not be supported at this time. If the Bill is to be enacted by Parliament, the Committee recommends a number of amendments.

Several inquiries have been undertaken into the franchising sector in recent years. These have put forward a host of recommendations to improve the standards of conduct in franchising. Many of these recommendations have been implemented into the national legislative framework for franchising in a series of amendments between 2008 and 2011.

The federal government has undertaken to review these amendments in 2013. Given the significance of these amendments, and the importance of uniform legislation to easing the cost and compliance burden for small businesses, the Committee is not convinced that the Bill is an appropriate measure at this time.

The Committee's view was also influenced by what it sees as the potentially adverse legal implications and cost impact to the state and franchising participants from the Bill.
