Movable Outdoor Soccer Goals Regulation Impact Statement - Australian Competition and Consumer Commission

Aust Gov
25th October 2010

This measure was announced on 1 July 2010. 

This regulation impact statement supports the introduction of a product safety standard for movable outdoor soccer goals. The standard was proposed in response to a number of injuries, and a few deaths in Australia and overseas. The majority of these incidents were associated with children climbing or swinging on unsecured goal posts. The standard reduces the risk of goal posts falling onto children.

The new standard will be accompanied by a Government advertising campaign aimed at informing parents, guardians and children of the risks of movable soccer goal posts.

The RIS has been approved by the OBPR.
