Consumer Challenges and Rights

A consumer is one that buys goods and services and utilizes economic goods.

Meaning of Consumer Rights

Consumption (or right of the consumer) is the name given to the set of rules emanating from public authorities aimed at the protection of the consumer or user in the market of goods and services, giving and regulating certain rights and obligations. The right of use is not an autonomous branch of the law, but a cross-discipline, with items that fit within commercial law, Civil law and others within the administrative law and procedural law.

The consumption law covers several key aspects of relations between producers and consumers:

  1. Contracts of adhesion: prohibits unfair terms that alter the contractual relationship in favour of the supplier of goods and services and tries to ensure that consumers know in advance all the General Conditions of the contract which the employer intends to use.
  2. Quality of the goods and services offered: minimum requirements.
  3. Regulation of advertising and offers to the public.
  4. Establishes special procedures for which consumers, associations and public bodies created so that they can defend themselves and prohibit certain abusive practices.
  5. Lists a list of infractions by employers and the corresponding penalties imposed by the competent authorities of consumption.
