National Consumer Agency

BackThe National Consumer Agency (NCA) is a statutory body established by the Irish Government in May 2007. It aims to defend consumer interests in Ireland.

The Government has given the NCA a very strong mandate to defend and promote consumer rights through:

-Forceful advocacy, targeted research, consumer information, education, and awareness programmes
-The systematic enforcement of consumer law

The Agency was established by the Minister for Enterprise, Trade & Employment in response to the publication of a 2005 report by the Consumer Strategy Group entitled: Make Consumers Count. This identified important deficiencies in the protection and promotion of consumer rights in Ireland.

The NCA:

-Represents the voice of the consumer
-Enforces consumer legislation
-Defends consumer interests at the highest levels of national and local decision-making
