About this course

The Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 (CCCFA) is the most important piece of legislation governing consumer lending in New Zealand.

The CCCFA contains strict provisions regarding disclosure of information by creditors to consumers at the beginning and throughout the term of the consumer credit contract. Failure to comply with these can have very serious consequences for those involved.

Safetrac’s ‘Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance’ course focuses on the application of the Act and the obligations that apply to consumer credit contracts.
