Question

Is It Legal To Set Minimum Resale Prices?

Answer

The Australian Consumer Law (ACL) prevents suppliers from imposing minimum resale prices on their customers. The means suppliers aren’t allowed to dictate prices for their products when they’re sold on.

This practice is called resale price maintenance, and it’s prohibited under the ACL.

Suppliers do still have some options if they want to recommend prices to their customers.
