The Consumer Rights Bill, which is currently making its passage through Parliament, will bring together, improve and update consumer law. It sets out a simple, modern framework of consumer rights.

Core Consumer Rights will be:

  • Right to get what you pay for
  • Right that goods and digital content are fit for purpose and services are provided with reasonable care and skill
  • Right to have faults in what you buy put right free of charge, or to be provided with a refund or replacement

We intend the Consumer Rights Bill to come into force on 1 October 2015, although this is of course subject to the will of Parliament.  See also: A summary of plans to implement the measures in the Bill.
