Our Key Sectors

In the quest to serve the wide spectrum of consumer protection needs in Uganda, there are a cross section of sectors and segments that we place much emphasis and they are usually the ones in which consumer rights are abused the most.


Through education and sensitizing the public, we continue cover the field to create awareness. We have provided on our website the hot lines to call when one is sold fake goods or provided with insufficient services. We continue to work with those concerned in this noble cause.

Health Care

The population is experiencing lots of diseases and discomfort as the result of the consumer rights abuse through the sale of extremely expired good, poor services, and negligence. Through consumer intelligence we have found out that some clinics and drug stores are managed by non-professional attendants or owners who have no attachment to the patients they serve.

Food Production

Most industries have failed to follow the rules enforced by UNBS, or any other legislated bodies, as the result, we have lots of duplicated goods in the market, which end up causing losses and discomfort to the consumers. The working environment is not favorable to qualify some of these to be called manufacturing plants.


All consumables are subject to inspection from all points of entries and even in the country. Some of them are locally manufactured or made, others do evade the UNBS offices or any other implementer check points, such goods and services end up on the market. That’s why our covert operators are in the field to end this practice.

Banking and Finance

We are here to assist in the process of negotiations, litigation, or providing information about such Bank, Lenders, etc. to consumers whose rights have been violated.
We work with all banks to ensure that consumers are not violated, and banks are safe guarded by having cleared customers in terms of credibility.

Credit Ratings and Credit Institutions

We are concerned when it comes to credit and credit institutions. Consumers fall pray to such institutions especially money lenders licensed or un licensed. There is no proper information to the consumers as to how they can be assisted in determining the interest rates, agreements provided by such providers, collateral or security asked.
