ASEAN Guidelines on Consumer Associations: Strengthening the Consumer Movement in ASEAN

These Guidelines are a testament to the legitimacy and importance of consumer associations – and the consumer movement, more broadly – as an element of democratic societies and fair market economies.

In accordance with the United Nations Guidelines on Consumer Protection (UNGCP), governments in ASEAN are encouraged to create an enabling environment for the work by consumer associations so they are able to cater to consumers in need of assistance.
