Consumer rights are afforded when a legislature enacts laws that prevent fraudulent and unfair business practices. This form of law is called Consumer Protection Law. Each country and state has their own restrictions on business practices; however, most fraud is prevented when consumers know their rights, do their research and report illegal activities when they happen. It is important to be a knowledgeable buyer to exercise your rights.
EU consumer policy priorities include:
• protecting your health, safety and economic well-being
• promoting your rights to information and education
safeguarding your interests and encouraging self-help associations.
