Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act

MyPaper, 3 Jul 2013

An expired cosmetic product is deemed to be unwholesome under the Health Products Act. It is an offence under the law for any person to sell or supply an unwholesome health product. The penalty is a fine of up to $50,000, a jail term of up to two years, or both.

The Consumers Association of Singapore (Case) said that under the Consumer Protection Fair Trading Act, “it is an unfair practice for the supplier to make a false claim about the expiry date or mislead the consumer by not doing or saying anything about the wrong expiry date”.

Case said a shop is “answerable to consumers if it sells expired goods”, and consumers have the right to seek redress under the law. Errant retailers may be fined.
