The Franchising Code of Conduct (the Code) is a mandatory obligation for all systems operating in Australia, and takes a comprehensive approach to disclosure, relationship laws and dispute issues. Expert author Peter Buberis takes a critical view of this regulatory framework, evaluating the threads that make up the Code that defines the franchising industry in Australia. 

Including chapters on the areas of disclosure, good faith, and intellectual property, Buberis takes a comprehensive approach in exploring the Code's development through its consideration and enforcement by the Regulator and the courts. Looking at recent case law, the chapters indicate continuing points of concern about the Code, and give cognisance to a recent Parliamentary review which may enhance its operation if adopted.  

For professionals in the franchising industry, and anyone looking to understand more about the Code that guides Australia's franchises, this is a comprehensive guide that engages and criticises this key piece of legislature.
