Sunglasses and fashion spectacles 

If you supply sunglasses or fashion spectacles, whether you are a retailer, distributor, or importer, you are responsible for ensuring that they comply with the mandatory standard for sunglasses and fashion spectacles set out in Australian Consumer Law (ACL).

Exposure to very high levels of sunlight is harmful to your eyes and can cause inflammation, cataracts and even degeneration of the retina. Some sunglasses can also cause impaired vision.
