Protection schemes and systems

The foundations of the NSW consumer protection framework were established in the early nineteenth century. Since then, countless developments and improvements have been implemented, combining over time, to build a safety net of protection for consumers and traders as they transact business in the NSW marketplace.

Many of the consumer protection schemes and systems currently operating have been part of the NSW safety net for some time. This section contains information on several of these mechanisms, their history, and how they continue to serve the consumers and traders of NSW.
