The existing NSW Fair Trading Regulation 2012 is due for automatic repeal on 1 September 2019. The Government is proposing to remake the Regulation with some changes. Among other things, the new Regulation will provide information standards relating to funeral service providers. The draft Regulation would no longer contain a provision for a basic funeral. The basic funeral is key to ensuring that those of limited means are able to buy a dignified funeral package. A draft Fair Trading Regulation 2019 (the Regulation) and accompanying Regulatory Impact Statement are now available for public consultation. The proposed Regulation supports the Fair Trading Act 1987 (the Act).
