Fédération Romande des consommateurs


The Romande Consumer Federation is a non-for profit and independent organisation. Our priority point is the promotion of more responsible consumption in Switzerland. With close to 30,000 members, FRC has fought since 1959 to have consumers’ rights respected and raise their awareness as purchasers.

Success Stories

In 1978, the FRC gathered a petition – obtaining more than 100,000 signatures – which led to the creation of a system of price control. Further to that, in 1986 the Law for Information to Consumers was established and in 1991 the Office of the Pricing Supervisor was created.
