Northern Territory Consumer Affairs Annual Report 2020-2021 10 Consumer Law (ACL) review proposals and other ongoing and proposed projects. It was agreed that a project would be progressed to take carriage of the transition to the new intergovernmental arrangements. Work for this project moved quickly with transitional plans put in place to advise stakeholders of the new arrangements. A governance architecture and operational arrangements were developed and agreed upon to ensure the ACL continues to be appropriately maintained and administered consistently. Due to restricted travel, no face-to-face meetings were held. Meetings occurred via teleconference or video conference. The CAF and all other committees were disbanded. New networks were created to continue the collaboration between the consumer protection agencies and are listed below. Consumer Ministers Network (CMN) consists of all Ministers responsible for consumer affairs or fair trading in Australia and New Zealand. Consumer Senior Officials Network (CSON) consists of the most relevant senior official from each of the Commonwealth Treasury, ACCC, ASIC and state, territory and New Zealand agencies responsible for consumer affairs or fair trading. Regulatory Compliance Network (RCN) - includes officials from the Commonwealth Treasury, and Commonwealth, state, territory and New Zealand agencies responsible for consumer affairs or fair trading. Consumer Education Network (CEN) - includes relevant officials from the Commonwealth Treasury, ACCC, ASIC, and state and territory and New Zealand agencies responsible for consumer affairs or fair trading. National Indigenous Consumer Strategy (NICS) - includes representatives from the ACCC, state and territory consumer protection agencies, and relevant Non-Government Organisations. Product Safety Officials Network (PSON) - enables officials to collaborate on consumer product safety issues of national significance. Consumer Policy Officials Network (CPON) - includes officials from the Commonwealth Treasury, ACCC, ASIC, and state and territory and New Zealand agencies responsible for consumer affairs or fair trading.
