On 23 June 2015 BIS published a policy paper which provides a quick reference to the organisations forming the Consumer Protection Partnership (CPP) and their roles independent of the CPP.
Of the CPP’s priority areas for 2015, BIS reported that it is currently focusing on:
- Developing a plan to deal with harm from subscription traps and social media or search engine advertising;
- Unfair cancellation terms in contracts; and
- Assessing whether collective action by the CPP would provide better protection for holiday products.
BIS has also been concentrating on new port of sale posters which reflect the Consumer Rights Act 2015, aiding consumers and businesses in locating consumer protection rules.
