The NZ Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 is a cornerstone piece of legislation. Its role is to protect consumers.
Under the Act, your consumer rights are expressed as a series of "guarantees" that a seller automatically makes to you when you buy any goods or services ordinarily purchased for personal use.
