As consumers we all have a right to know that the products and services we buy will satisfy our needs, be fit for purpose, and, most importantly, be safe. Whether that’s food that’s in date and produced to certain standards, or a child’s car seat that’s been rigorously tested. We want everyone to be provided with the right facts and skills to make confident and empowered decisions. Through our research and campaigning activities alongside other consumer organisations worldwide, we’re working towards a world with safer products for all. Our work helps to ensure that products aren’t promoted with misleading information, and that known safety issues are addressed.
