Banned Products List - Victoria


Products that may cause death or injury may be banned. It is illegal to sell banned products.

Products may be banned under the Australian Consumer Law. There are two types of bans: interim bans and permanent bans. Interim bans may be made by the responsible Agency in any State or Territory, or the responsible Commonwealth Agency. Interim bans last for 60 days, but may be extended for a further 30 days.

Interim bans only apply in the State or Territory where they are made (unless the Commonwealth Agency makes the interim ban). Permanent bans are national wide bans that can only be made by the responsible Commonwealth Agency. Bans can be applied only to consumer goods. Consumer goods are goods intended to be used for personal, domestic or household use or consumption.
