ACL第54节明确规定了适用的必要规则，作为可接受质量的保证。 ACL第54条第（2）款规定，货物应具有可接受的质量，并且必须适合货物通常供应的所有目的。它必须是可接受的质量，因为它应该没有缺陷，也必须是安全和耐用的。作为可接受的质量的定义，事实上已经确定，完全熟悉商品的状态和使用的任何合理的消费者必须能够基于其推理接受它。在ACL第54条第2款规定的质量方面的一些要素是货物的性质，价格，货物在质量，包装等方面的材料表示。根据ACL第54条（4）如果有理由说明货物质量可能不合格，那么这些原因必须已经清楚地表达给客户，并且客户应该充分了解货物为什么不合格。根据（6），如果消费者由于与合理的消费者消费方式相比的某些异常使用而导致消费者在某种程度上使其变得不可接受的质量，则认为该商品不符合可接受的质量保证。除了ACL第54（6）条规定的这种情况，补救措施可以在澳大利亚消费者法律下找到。 2011年对ACL第54条所作的修改确保有一个比制造商保修更长的法定保证。 “有时候，你会看到制造商的保修期可能只有三个月，六个月或者十二个月的时间，而零售商在消费者保证下的保证有时可以超出这个范围，考虑到产品的性质和它的预期用途”澳大利亚竞争和消费者委员会的Grame Samuel先生说。因此，消费者可以期望比上述第54条规定的制造商担保更长时间的法律保证。
Section 54 of the ACL clearly states the necessary rules to be applicable as the guarantee to acceptable quality. 54 (2) of the ACL states that the goods are to be of acceptable quality, and must be fit for all purposes for which the goods are commonly supplied for. It must be of acceptable quality in that it should be free of defects, must be safe and durable as well. As a definition of acceptable quality, it is in fact ascertained that any reasonable consumer who is fully acquainted with the state and use of the goods must be able to accept it based on their reasoning. Some of the elements with respect to quality that would come under consideration of provisions in subsection 2 of ACL section 54 are the nature of the goods, their price, material representation of the goods with respect to quality, packaging, etc. Under ACL section 54(4), if there are reasons why goods might not be of accepted quality, then these reasons must have been represented to the customer clearly and the customer should have accepted supply with the full knowledge of why they are not of acceptable quality. Under (6), goods are to be considered as not meeting the acceptable quality guarantee if the consumer has in some way made them into unacceptable quality because of some abnormal use in comparison with that of a reasonable consumer’s consumption style. Excepting this situation provided under ACL subsection 54(6) remedies are available under the Australian Consumer law. The changes made to the section 54 of ACL in 2011 ensured that there is a statutory guarantee which is longer than that of the manufacturer warranty. “Sometimes, you’ll see manufacturer’s warranties that may only be for three, six or 12 months in total, whereas the retailer’s guarantee under the consumer guarantees can sometimes extend beyond that, having regard to the nature of the product and its intended use” stated Mr. Grame Samuel of ‘The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’. So a consumer can expect a legal guarantee for a longer time than that of the manufacturer guarantee with respect to the above mentioned subsection 54.
