The act makes sure that Deco’s are selling satisfactory items that are fit to do what they are meant to, This also means that the food has to be satisfactory as well. It all comes down to what the customer wants. For example if you wanted hall meat. This act also abides to Sass, as even though the items you are purchasing are brand new you can’t see the state in which it is in and if its fully functional. But, you do get about a year to see if it is , which means you can take the item back without a reason and get a full refund.
So this act means that Sass has to ale items which are in a good condition and also means if the customer have bought a printer from Sass , but have requested that it is compatible with a computer and they agreed, it means it is fit for the purpose. The Customer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations in 2008- This act is put in place to stop unfair and misleading trading, to customers. It also means that door to door selling is banned.

For example, if they were to have an order of 5 TV’s for tomorrow and the customer who have ordered these paid in full before they got the items, this means Deco’s are in credit and to be in credit you have to have a license. This also applies to Sass the same way, if you were to buy an item of electronics from Sass and you could not collect the item for a few days it means they are in credit, and again must have a license.
