About the product

In 1985 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the UN Guidelines for Consumer Protection to assist countries in developing and strengthening consumer protection policies. The guidelines covered such issues as product safety, responsibilities of producers and distributors, consumer education and information, and redress measures. This edition contains expanded guidelines in the six official languages of the UN (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish).
