The Eurasian Economic Commission’s Board approved methodological recommendations for the Eurasian Economic Union countries on drafting national programs in the field of consumer rights protection at a meeting held on March 1.

The document was elaborated to implement the Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025. It defines the development algorithm, structure, goals, objectives of national programs in the field of consumer rights protection, target indicators and their efficiency factors.

In particular, the EAEU countries are invited to introduce measures that will ensure equality in settling transboundary consumer disputes, exclude unfair business practices and guarantee the availability of high-quality and safe goods with complete and accurate information. These measures should consider the specifics of protecting consumer rights of vulnerable communities, assist in advancing sustainable consumption principles and promote the activities of consumer public associations.

The set of measures and decisions recommended by the Commission will be a guide when preparing strategic planning documents in the field of consumer rights protection in the Union countries.​
