1.For each establishment in which the merchant intends to use the exemption prescribed in section 91.4 of the Regulation respecting the application of the Consumer Protection Act (chapter P-40.1, r. 3), the merchant shall adopt and apply an accurate pricing policy offering consumers compensation in the case of an unfavourable error corresponding to the following minimum standards:
(1) where the price of the good rung in at the check-out is higher than the price advertised, the lower price shall be honoured and:
(a) the merchant shall give the good to the consumer free of charge, if the accurate price of the good is $10 or less; or
(b) the merchant shall correct the price and grant the consumer a discount of $10 on the corrected price, if the accurate price of the good is higher than $10;
(2) where the same error occurs in respect of identical goods during the same transaction, the merchant shall correct each of the errors but compensate the consumer in accordance with paragraph 1 for only one of those goods;
(3) the accurate pricing policy shall apply even if the error is noticed before the transaction is completed, on the condition however that the consumer buys the good;
(4) the accurate pricing policy shall not apply in respect of a specific good if its application contravenes an Act or regulation.
