Consumer protection is designed to empower and protect purchasers against unfair trade practices by businesses.


Under consumer protection laws, one is entitled to fair trade, competition and accurate information in the marketplace and has the legal right to take action against businesses who do not comply with these regulations.

A trader is considered to have engaged in unfair practices if he:

  • does or says anything, or omits to do or say anything, that may result in a consumer being deceived or misled
  • makes a false claim
