Brexit : Transposition of laws – What’s the point if enforcement is weak?

The 5 December 2017 Consumer Congress focused on issues relating to market surveillance and enforcement, one of the principal messages from the April Consumer Congress and an often-overlooked element in the market place that is vital to the success of the market and to consumer trust. More specifically, as Baroness Judith Wilcox, President of the NCF, stated in her introduction, the objective was to drill down into the issues surrounding enforcement and market surveillance; to expose weaknesses and to celebrate successes; to recognise constraints, but to come up with innovative ways forward to ensure that good businesses thrive and poor performers either improve to become good businesses, or pay the price for their failures.

The Congress outputs are now being taken forward by the NCF Enforcement Alliance to ensure that consumer protection meets consumer expectations post Brexit.

What’s next?

Following the success of the last congress, Zero Carbon by 2050, we should like to make definite plans for a follow-up congress focussing on the digital home.  As its not going to be possible to have a face-to-face meeting of the usual kind due to the distancing regulations which will be in force for some time to come, we are looking into the possibility of a virtual congress. 

 

Themes to be discussed might be privacy and security, product safety and the environmental impact and performance of the products available.
