Refusal to Deal (Toolkit)

For large and small business, supply and refusal to deal are critical issues.

SMEs and larger businesses often have issues with access to necessary inputs or services, or the terms of supply required, to enable them to supply and compete effectively. Large businesses often face challenges deciding when it is legitimate and legal to refuse access to or the supply of their products or services. Consumers are often affected by supply chain issues.

This toolkit provides resources to assist lawyers to identify when refusal to deal may be illegal or risk contravention of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 or Australian Consumer Law.
