National Association for Consumer Protection - OFE
National Association for Consumer Protection - OFE is a non-profit association of local consumer groups and national advocacy groups. Its objectives include representing consumer interests in legal and Alternative Dispute Resolution fora, ensuring consumers have fair contracts. OFE also sets up tutorials and dispenses advice via its network of local consumer support centres.Volunteers are the greatest strength of the organisation. External specialists in areas from legal advice to food security, finance, media and PR work closely with more than 1,000 volunteers dedicated to protect consumers.
Following intense lobbying during the adoption of the Consumer Protection Act of 1997, NGOs were given concrete tasks and financial resources in the final law.
