Horticulture Code compliance checks
The ACCC will begin investigating the industry’s level of compliance with the revised Horticulture Code later this year.
The revised code was introduced on 1 April this year and is designed to offer new protections for growers and traders.
Breaching the code could result in an infringement notice or court action, including penalties of up to $63,000 for serious breaches of certain sections of the code.
For other smaller breaches, the ACCC can issue infringement notices to the value of $10,500 for body corporates and $2,100 for individuals.
For further information about the 2017 Horticulture Code visit the ACCC website, which includes FAQs and sample Horticulture Produce Agreements, which may be able to be used as templates.
