CIDIP VII - Consumer Protection

United States

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.
