The legislative framework administered by NSW Fair Trading sets the scene and the rules for fairness in the countless daily transactions between consumers and traders.
A system of licensing and the investigation of complaints help ensure unqualified or inappropriate people do not conduct their business in NSW. Often behind the scenes, non-compliance with our legislative framework is investigated and perpetrators can be fined, have their licence taken away or even imprisoned.
Data and statistics relating to the number of complaints received by Fair Trading, our compliance and enforcement activities as well as recent licensing trends, can be found in this section.
