Kick-start for Peru´s Peer Review on Consumer Protection
19 - 30 September 2019
Lima, Peru

Key Issues

​In its resolution 70/186 of 22 December 2015, the United Nations General Assembly mandated UNCTAD to conduct voluntary peer reviews of national consumer protection policies of Member States, as implemented by consumer protection authorities. In 2019, UNCTAD and the National Institute for the Defence of Free Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (INDECOPI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to conduct Peru’s Voluntary Peer Review on Consumer Protection Law and Policy, which will be completely self-funded.
The first step is for UNCTAD to conduct a comprehensive fact-finding exercise to determine the state of play of Peru’s consumer protection legal and institutional frameworks. This will involve meeting with all relevant stakeholders comprising public and private institutions.

UNCTAD will prepare a background report for the Voluntary Peer Review on Consumer Protection Law and Policy of Peru, which will take place at the Eight United Nations Conference to Review the Set on Competition in July 2020.

The purpose of UNCTAD’s Voluntary Peer Review on Consumer Protection Law and Policy is to provide an external assessment of the effectiveness of consumer protection law and policy in a given country; to identify the challenges to be addressed and areas to be improved in the legal and institutional frameworks, thereby contributing to enhancing quality, efficiency and consumer protection regimes; to assess the consumer protection awareness of relevant stakeholders and their contributions in this area; to formulate and recommend appropriate measures, designed in consideration of the economic and developmental particularities of each country, to address these challenges; and, where appropriate, to assist countries in implementing the recommendations by developing a capacity-building project in consultation with the country concerned.
