2016 ACA Update on Bunk Bed Standards

Dear Members,

We are currently exploring the latest updates relating to Australian Bunk Bed Standards and have contacted the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) for an update on their ‘Review of Mandatory Standards for Bunk Beds‘. This is in response to their call for submissions on the Standards which ended in April 2016.

November 2016 Update:

The ACA asked the ACCC about the status of this review and their response was:

“Thank you for your email regarding the status of the review of the mandatory safety standard for bunk beds.

We are in the process of finalising the regulation impact statement for final assessment by the Office of Best Practice Regulation. Once that process is complete we will make a recommendation to the Minister. We are hoping the new mandatory safety standard for bunk beds will be published before the end of the year.

We will contact you and other stakeholders when the Minister has made a decision.

Kind regards

Carolyn Mooney
Assistant Director (A/g) | Standards and Policy | Consumer Product Safety Branch”
