Groceries Code Adjudicator powers come into force

The key provisions of the Groceries Code Adjudicator Act 2013 came into force on 25 June 2013, formally establishing the role, and commencing the powers, of the Groceries Code Adjudicator.

The government has published a guide to help determine whether a complaint is within the scope of the Adjudicator’s powers. The government has also announced that it will publish, for consultation, guidance on how the Adjudicator will use her powers, how she will run investigations, and how and when sanctions will be applied. The Adjudicator will only be able to launch investigations after consultation and finalisation of this guidance, although she can still accept complaints in the meantime.
