Preparing retailers and consumers for start of Lemon Law that takes effect 1 Sept
Singapore's "Lemon Law" that will kick in tomorrow has new provisions that will improve the consumer-retailer relationship as businesses improve their sales and service processes.
Minister of State for Trade and Industry, Teo Ser Luck, said this during a visit to home furnishing retailer IKEA as it gears up for the change in law.
Mr Teo said with the new Lemon Law, consumers and retailers will have more options of recourse for defective goods.
He encouraged everyone to familiarise themselves with the provisions under the Law.
Mr Teo added that at the same time, his ministry also wants to ensure that businesses are not subject to frivolous claims and that limitations and safeguards are in place.
The new legislation will provide more options in terms of recourse for both consumers and retailers through additional remedies.
It would also provide greater clarity on the burden of proof for defective goods.
