Consumer rights, responsibilities to be discussed at Byron
REPRESENTATIVES from NSW Fair Trading will be in Byron Bay this week to deliver an education program called My Place.
Commissioner Rod Stowe said residents and traders will be able to learn more about consumer rights and responsibilities.
"My Place is a grassroots approach to strengthening Fair Trading's presence in the community," he said.
"Staff will be in the local area to deliver information seminars on a range of issues including consumer rights and scams awareness.
"A highlight of the program will be the Revved Up session, where staff will visit students at the Byron Bay High School and provide tips and advice on how to avoid some of the pitfalls when buying a first car."
Other highlights will include seminars on incorporated associations and a Money Stuff session for school students. Last year more than 55,000 people participated in Fair Trading's community education programs.
