United Nations Conference on Trade and Development

Implementation of the UN Guidelines for Consumer Protection

Consumers International is working with UNCTAD to promote consumer protection internationally and support the implementation of the UN Guidelines for Consumer Protection (UNGCP). One forum through which we do this is the Intergovernmental Group of Experts (IGE), a global forum hosted by UNCTAD where government agencies discuss progress in consumer protection and agree joint actions.

In addition we have a memoriam of understanding with UNCTAD to carry out research, campaigns, advocacy, project development and implementation, and capacity-building, on issues related to consumer protection, competition and international trade.
