Australia's legal framework on electronic commerce

The Electronic Transactions Act 1999

Enacting the Commonwealth Electronic Transactions Act 1999 was a major step towards supporting and encouraging the development of electronic commerce in Australia. It contains rules applying to the interpretation of other legislation.

Basically, it states that a transaction under a law of the Commonwealth will not be invalid simply because it was conducted by the use of electronic communications.

The Electronic Transactions Act allows any of the following requirements or permissions under Commonwealth law to be fulfilled in electronic form:

• Giving information in writing
• Providing a handwritten signature
• Producing a document in material form, and
• Recording or retaining information.

The implementation of the Electronic Transactions Act was in two stages:

(1) Before 1 July 2001 it only applied to those laws of the Commonwealth that were specified in the Electronic Transactions Regulations 2000.

(2) On or after 1 July 2001 it applied to all laws of the Commonwealth unless they were specifically exempted from application of the Act by the Electronic Transactions Regulations.

The Attorney-General’s decision to exempt a law from the application of the Electronic Transactions Act is made in consultation with other Departments. The decision is based on the commitment to deliver all appropriate services online where possible. Most exemptions can be found in Schedule 1 of the Electronic Transactions Regulations.

If you need legal help regarding any aspect of e-commerce law, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Uniform Electronic Transactions in the States and Territories

The Australian Government consulted with the States and Territories, to develop uniform legislation that removes legal obstacles to the development of electronic commerce throughout Australia. This was done through the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General in the form of a model uniform Electronic Transactions Bill 2000.

The uniform Bill was closely modelled on the Commonwealth's Electronic Transactions Act and mirrors the substantive provisions of the Commonwealth's Act. On 3 April 2000 the Attorney-General announced that all jurisdictions had endorsed the uniform Bill.

Each State and Territory now has its own Electronics Transactions Act. They generally mirror the Commonwealth Electronic Transactions Act with occasional small differences in definitions and some additional sections.

If you need legal help regarding any aspect of e-commerce law, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Other laws affecting e-commerce

Consumer protection laws apply equally to online and offline environments. The Commonwealth’s Trade Practices Act 1974 and the Australian Security and Investment Commission Act 2001 apply regardless of whether a transaction is conducted through electronic or conventional means.

The Commonwealth’s Privacy Act 1988 regulates the collection and handling of personal information by Commonwealth government agencies, large private sector organisations as well as health care services providers and organisations that trade in personal information. The Privacy Act is technology neutral and applies to personal information comprised in electronic records as well as other mediums.

The Cybercrime Act 2001

The Cybercrime Act 2001 created a number of investigation powers and criminal offences designed to protect the security, reliability, and integrity of computer data and electronic communications in the Criminal Code Act 1995. This outlaws activities such as unauthorised access to restricted data (hacking) and spreading computer viruses.
