We represent over 24,000 shopfronts across Australia and New Zealand, making us the one of the most powerful voices for Australian businesses. Our policy team works hard to bring retailers together in a non-competitive environment and provide a platform to have your voice heard.

We tackle the issues you can’t tackle alone.

 

How we represent your interests

Business Operations & Risks

From everyday business risks through to wider industry issues, our policy team supports and works closely with members to drive change in all areas of retail.

We use in-house and external resources to stay actively involved in issues that matter to retailers.

Committees

We coordinate a number of important industry committees. These committees facilitate vital discussions and offer retailers the opportunity to contribute to retail industry policy.

Find out more about our active committees at the links below:

Regulatory Reform

Retail regulations are often subject to change. As a peak industry body, we contribute to important discussions, meetings and submissions to fight for the best outcomes for the retail industry.

Find out more about our work on Liquor Regulation and Gift card reform.

Environmental Regulations

The National Retail Association continues to play an active role in developing and implementing environmental regulations in the retail space.

Recent projects include:

  1. QLD Plastic Bag Ban
  2. WA Plastic Bag Ban
  3. Container Deposit Schemes
Special Events

We liaise with government around special events like the Commonwealth Games and public holidays that impact the retail sector.
