Ensuring ‘Australian made’ is Australian made

I thought it was worth featuring this recent comment about Australian made gear.

From Brett: “I would love to see just how “Australian Made” their products are?

The terms “Australian Made” and “Australian Owned” do not reveal the actual level of Australian inputs and are in fact, quite Un-Australian in their usage requirements. To remedy this problem a new “Australian Authenticity Logo” has been unveiled. Visit the website to see what is behind the labels and logos such as Australian Made.

Oz Compliance makes a qualified statement as to the Australian level of inputs for Content, Ownership, Manufacture and its Packed Status. Truth in labelling has a name and it is Oz COMPliance.

Consumers have the right to know where their Food and Goods come from. Without Oz Compliance they cannot make an informed choice, regardless if it is a health choice, a cost choice, a patriotic choice or one of principle.

OzCOMPliance is the answer to providing a reasonable basis upon which to compare any two items. It provides a means of comparison that gives a truthful impression which in itself, makes it unlike any other Country of Origin label (COOL) or similar “Trust Mark” that we are all familiar with

By looking for the OzCOMPliance Logo, you can see for yourself just how much of any item is actually Australian by the stated percentage scores for Content, Owned, Made and Packed”.

Check here for details on what OzCompliance says ‘Australian made’ actually means.
