The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Committee on Consumer Policy (CCP) seeks to enhance the development and enforcement of effective consumer policies. It does so by:
- carrying out research and analysis on topics of common interest;
- exchanging information on current and emerging issues and trends;
- developing guidelines for addressing problematic areas, and;
- examining ways to strengthen policy outcomes through law enforcement co-operation between governments and with other stakeholders.
It is the only intergovernmental forum addressing a broad range of consumer issues.
The Committee includes senior consumer policy and enforcement officials from OECD governments, including representatives from the Office of Consumer Affairs, and works closely with experts from civil society and the business community. In addition to its semi-annual meetings, the CCP organises workshops on specific issues in which stakeholders from member countries and non-member economies often take part.
