The NZCC has launched a new website aimed at helping participants in the health sector better understand competition and consumer laws, including what they need to do to comply.

The website is the latest in a string of initiatives launched by the NZCC as part of its "health advocacy project", which is aimed at lifting the understanding of competition and consumer laws in the health sector. This project was launched in late 2012 in response to concerns by the NZCC regarding a lack of knowledge of competition laws by health professionals.

This new website should be seen as a positive and proactive step on the part of the Commission to address the concerns it has identified.
