Amendments to Consumer Protection Regulations

The IPA Legal & Public Affairs team is reminding its members of the amendments to the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPRs) by the Consumer Protection (Amendment) Regulations. The amended regulations came into force on 1st October 2014.


The main change will allow consumers to bring claims directly against businesses for breaching certain provisions of the CPRs dealing with misleading actions – including advertising – and aggressive commercial practices.
