New tools for consumer protection lobbying

17 Jun 2014

Consumers International has released two new briefings outlining our key proposals for the revision of the UN Guidelines for Consumer Protection.

UNGCP briefing notes launched

We are inviting consumer advocates the world over to use these proposals in dialogue with their national authorities: let them know what the consumer movement is seeking from The Guidelines and why.

The Guidelines for Consumer Protection are key benchmarks for strengthening national consumer protection policies and legislation around the world.

The first ‘Implementation note’ sets out our proposal for a UN Standing Commission for Consumer Protection to support and monitor the implementation of The Guidelines.

The second ‘Other issues note’ explains how the additional matters can be efficiently addressed by the working groups. 

The revision of the UN Guidelines for Consumer Protection is making progress, but there is still more work to be done.
