The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) have published much needed guidance on its use of infringement notices issued under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (CCA).

This guidance is timely because:

- the ACCC has actively issued infringement notices to the business community, having collected approximately AUD620,000 in penalties under infringement notices up to December 2012

- the amount of penalties sought by the ACCC under infringement notices has recently increased by more than 50%.
