Quality Standards and Regulations

Each Stallholder or Entertainer must comply with these expectations

1. Mandatory Standards:

2. Product Bans:

https://www.productsafety.gov.au/product-safety-laws/safety-standards-bans/product-bans/about-product-bans

All traders in the supply chain, including Stallholders, have an obligation to take steps to ensure that stocks of products they sell that are covered by these standards and bans comply with the mandatory requirements. Suppliers should ensure that any compliance statement made on products, packaging or promotional material is correct.

The best way of demonstrating compliance with a mandatory product safety standard is to obtain a copy of a Test Report from either the product manufacturer or your supplier.

NOTE: that Test Reports should show compliance with the relevant Australian/New Zealand Standard adopted under legislation (refer particular product details at the Product Safety Australia web site

https://www.productsafety.gov.au prefixed with “AS/NZS”.

Traders should not rely upon Test Reports showing compliance with overseas Standards e.g. prefixed with “EN” or “ASTM”.

Especially relevant for Stallholders & Entertainers providing their own power generation equipment.

Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2010 – Works (especially relevant for traders providing their own power generation equipment)

https://www.worksafe.qld.gov.au/laws-and-compliance/electrical-safety-codes-of-practice

From 1 July 2018 persons conducting a business or undertaking are required to comply with an approved code of practice under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011. Alternatively, Stallholders can follow another method, such as a technical or an industry standard, to manage hazards and risks, as long as it provides an equivalent or higher standard of work health and safety to the standard required in the code.

Our security and traffic control personnel are here to help everything run smoothly.  They will respect you as long as you respect them and their instructions.  We appreciate that not everything will run to plan, the security and traffic control personnel are there to make sure that a fair & safe outcome is achieved in the shortest time.

Please make the effort to comply with your designated times for Bump-in.  The markets offer one-way vehicular traffic for bump-in and bump-out, so it is important to get the sequencing right as much as is possible.  The security and traffic control personnel are there to manage circumstances when this does not happen for whatever reason, so please follow their directions and all will be well.

Bump-out times are there for every Stallholder’s benefit and for the speedy re-opening of Williams Esplanade to normal traffic.  Please do not extend your market trading beyond market hours as doing so will result in your future site booking requests being placed under review.
