The Distilled Spirits Industry Council of Australia Inc and others are seeking authorisation in relation to certain aspects of a proposed Alcohol Beverages Advertising (and Packaging) Code and its associated Rules and Procedures, which establish a system for the removal of inappropriately named or packaged alcohol products from the market (the Retailer Alert Scheme).
If a complaint about the name or packaging of an alcohol beverage is made, and the product is found not to comply with the Code, this will trigger a communication to retailers (a Retailer Alert). Retailers who are signatories to the Code will not place further orders for non-compliant product, and suppliers who are signatories to the Code will withdraw or modify non-compliant product to ensure compliance with the Code.
On 31 October 2007, the ACCC issued a final determination which grants conditional authorisation to the Retailer Alert Scheme until 30 June 2011.
