It's National Consumer Protection Week

Share This Page

This is National Consumer Protection Week, and it’s the biggest and best NCPW in 15 years.  Thanks to 64 federal, state and local agencies and nonprofits that are putting the spotlight on the critical consumer protection work they do year-round, consumers have easy access to a tremendous variety of timely, useful information about recognizing and reporting frauds and scams, managing credit and debt, using technology, and staying healthy and safe.

But NCPW also is a celebration of businesses that treat their customers right.  If you advertise your products truthfully, protect consumers’ personal information, and take other steps to win their loyalty every day, NCPW is a good time to give your staff — and yourself — a pat on the back.

Just as the BCP Business Center is a resource for companies looking for to-the-point compliance advice, is a one-stop shop for consumer information and outreach tools to share with your networks and communities, both virtual and in-person.  Read the latest news and views from consumer protection experts on the NCPW blog; check out videos, articles, and audio tips; order free materials; or file a complaint.

NCPW only lasts a week, but our websites are live 24/7/365.  We hope you’ll visit often to stay informed and involved.



I was unable to participate in NCPB week's activities because I was switched off the air. I have a lot of catching up to do.
