The ACCC has started Federal Court proceedings against Decathlon (Australia) Pty Ltd for supposedly offering sports and recreation items that did not fulfill the product safety standards.

The ACCC claims that during the period October 2016 to December 2019, Decathlon proposed 14 models of basketball rings and backboards along with five models of portable swimming pools which failed to carry the safety labelling, customer warnings and use instructions that are necessary under applicable product safety standards.

In that time frame, Decathlon sold over 400 basket ball rings and backboards plus 300 portable pool via online mode or at store.

Decathlon was also charged for making misleading representation related to a few of the basketball rings and backboards which were safe to connect to brickwork.
