Franchising Code of Conduct Review – Report Released Today

The 2013 Review of the Franchising Code of Conduct Report undertaken by Mr Alan Wein was today released to the public.

Mr Wein’s report was submitted to the Minister for Small Business on 30th April. His task was to prepare a report on his findings and recommendations in regards to:


  • Good faith in franchising;
  • The rights of franchisees at the end of the term of their franchise agreements, including recognition for any contribution they have made to the building of the franchise; and
  • The operation of the provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 as they relate to enforcement of the Franchising Code.

The final report made 18 recommendations of change to the Franchising Code of Conduct in regards to the above matters. You can read the full report here:
