Door-to-Door (Unsolicited) Sales

Regulations relating to door-to-door sales vary greatly between jurisdictions – in Australia and Canada, door-to-door sales practices are heavily regulated, whereas in New Zealand regulations are less stringent and in some countries can be non-existent.

In Australia, the regulatory environment governing door-to-door sales is complex and heavy penalties apply for breach. In our experience, the regulations are not commonly known by independent salespeople, and without specific training, the principal can find themselves liable for the acts of their agent.
