Welcome to CICREB, Your consumer rights Champion.
CICREB through research of existing laws, is compilling laws to be adopted in the Uganda constitution to help in the task of enforcing rules and regulations to protect consumers.
In regulatory jurisdictions that provide for this (a list including most or all developed countries with free market economies) Consumer Protection is a group of laws and organisations designed to ensure the rights of consumers, as well as fair trade, competition, and accurate information in the market place. These laws are designed to prevent businesses that engage in fraud or unfair practices from gaining an unfair advantage over competitors.
Consumer protection laws are a form of government regulations that aimed at protecting the rights of consumers, particularly in areas where safety or public health is an issue. These laws are upheld by government organisations and self-regulating business organisations such as Consumer protection agencies, ombudsmen, the FTC in America, the Better Business Bureau in the America and Canada or CICREB in Uganda among others.
