    As promised during my “Introduction to Consumer Protection in LAC” series, I have adapted and amended those posts to convert them into standalone pages now easily accessible through the Temas Tools link directory in the righthand column. These are:

    Overview of Consumer Law in LAC

    Overview of Consumer Authorities in LAC

    Overview of Consumer NGOs in LAC

    The first two have some changes from their initial versions as posts. The law discussion now includes (1) national laws or regulations (where they exist) on such specific consumer protection issues as advertising, abusive clauses in consumer contracts, home sales (“doorstep sales”), product labeling, promotions and offers, and recalls; (2) framework consumer protection laws (where they exist) in Argentina’s provinces and in Brazil’s states. I also added a note about cooperation under the aegis of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) in drafting consumer protection framework laws for its members.

    The authorities discussion now includes links to those consumer protection authorities in Argentine provinces and Brazilian states (PROCONs) that have working websites.

    If you find that I have missed an important LAC consumer law, authority or NGO, please let me know. I want to keep these pages as complete and up-to-date as possible.
