The Contract and Commercial Law Act came into force 1 September 2017 repealing several existing commercial statutes that are consolidated within the new legislation.

This module will take a practical approach in outlining the effect of these changes including addressing how CCLA’s transitional provisions will operate in respect of affected statutes, providing a refresher on some of the underlying statutes which are being folded into the new Act, and discussing what to consider when you are looking at amending your standard terms and conditions and other template documents.

The presenters will discuss:
  • The key provisions and what they have affected
  • How the different parts works together
  • How the transitional provisions will operate.

The Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017 (CCLA or Act) came into force on 1 September 2017. It repealed and consolidated a number of commercial statutes, with a view to producing a modern, accessible statute. It is not intended to make substantive changes to the law, but is a significant reorganisation of some key, and some obscure, commercial and contractual legislation. It is important to note that it does not consolidate all commercial statutes and that a number of important statutes continue to exist as separate enactments, including the Fair Trading Act 1986 and the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.

This paper provides an overview of the CCLA, including thoughts on transitional steps and potential fish hooks, before reviewing the key features of the re-enacted legislation.

Structure of paper:

  • Part One sets out a brief background to the legislative history of the CCLA, including the reasons for consolidation. It then discusses the practicalities of transitioning to this new Act, including key points for practitioners to note when updating or amending their standard terms and conditions.
  • Part Two considers the key parts and subparts of the CCLA, setting out the key purpose and effect of each.
  • Appendix 1 sets out schedule 2 of the CCLA, setting out the minor amendments made to clarify Parliament’s intent or reconcile inconsistencies; and
  • Appendix 2 sets out schedule 3 of the CCLA, a comparative table which shows the previous statutory references and the corresponding new references in the CCLA.
