At Arnotts Technology Lawyers, our regulation lawyers have specific experience advising clients on their regulatory obligations. For example, we regularly advise clients on their obligations under the Corporations Act, Competition and Consumer Act (including the Australian Consumer Law) and the Privacy Act (including the Australian Privacy Principles).
Some of the different laws and regulations that our regulation compliance lawyers advise on include:
- The Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)
- The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) including the Australian Consumer Law
- The Copyright Act 1968 (Cth)
- The Privacy Act 1988 (Cth)
- The Telecommunications Act 1997 (Cth)
Our regulation lawyers can advise you on your corporate regulatory compliance requirements, your compliance with the Australian Consumer Law (including in relation to unfair contract term laws, misleading and deceptive conduct, unconscionable conduct and consumer guarantees), copyright legislation and privacy compliance matters.
Regulatory advice is an important part of any business. Without a good regulation lawyer, it can be difficult to navigate all of the different laws and regulations facing your business. Regulation compliance lawyers are important for companies that provide goods and services and also those that acquire products and services.
At Arnotts Technology Lawyers, our regulation lawyers have particular expertise in advising clients on the Telecommunications Act and the Telecommunications Code of Practice, including in relation to low impact facility notifications and objections made to them. Our regulation lawyers have experience acting on both sides – both for land owners who receive low impact notices and who wish to object to the deployment of telecommunications infrastructure on their land; and also for telecommunications carriers who wish to deploy their network infrastructure on land in accordance with the powers available to them under the Telecommunications Act.
Our regulation compliance lawyers can assist you with all of your legal compliance requirements. A good regulation lawyer can help you understand your regulatory obligations so that you can plan on how to manage them and avoid non-compliance consequences, including fines and other regulatory action.
Regulation lawyers can also help you understand how to manage any requests from regulators including the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).
