• CIDIP VII - Consumer Protection
The government of the United States submitted an
outline for draft Legislative Guidelines on Consumer Redress
Mechanisms in 2006. In 2008, the United States submitted a revised
version of its proposal accompanied by four additional Model Laws.
The purpose of these Legislative Guidelines and
Model Laws is to encourage the adoption of effective mechanisms for
monetary consumer redress through alternative dispute resolution,
particularly for injuries with small monetary value.
Canada submitted written comments on the United
States’ Legislative Guidelines.
