National Consumer Week 2-6 Nov 2015

Know your rights - the week long campaign run by Citizens Advice and Trading Standards

The week long campaign is run by Citizens Advice and Trading Standards and aims to help consumers learn more about their new rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

The Act came in to force on the 1st October and sees the biggest changes for some time in consumer law. It reduces eight pieces of legislation into one, making consumer rights clearer and easier to understand. It also gives better protection when buying digital products and shopping online.
