Confederación de Consumidores y Usuarios (CECU)
Confederation of Consumers and Users
Confederación de Consumidores y Usuarios (CECU) was founded in 1983 by various independent consumer associations from 8 autonomous regions. CECU is a member of the Spanish National Consumers and Users Council and represents Spain at the European level both in the Association for the Co-ordination of Consumer Representation in Standardisation (ANEC) and in the EU consumer consultative group, ECCG. CECU has organised six inter-regional consumer congresses for Spanish and Latin American agencies, in which consumer associations from 18 countries took part; These events have resulted in several Collaboration Agreements signed with some associations. The Confederation carries out consumer lobbying, information and education campaigns, as well as projects and is involved in institutional campaigns at the national and European levels.
