About: What is Consumers International? Consumers International (CI) is the world federation of consumer groups that, working together with its members, serves as the only independent and authoritative global voice for consumers.  

  • With over 220 member organisations in 115 countries, CI is building a powerful international movement to help protect and empower consumers everywhere.
  • Founded in 1960, the organisation is now needed more than ever. This modern movement is essential to secure a fair safe and sustainable future for consumers in a global marketplace increasingly dominated by international corporations.
  • Consumers International is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, company number 4337865, and registered charity number 1122155.

The development of consumer rights:

He went on set out the following four basic consumer rights to:

  • Safety
  • Information
  • Choice
  • Be heard.

In recent years the consumer movement under the guidance of Consumers International added four more rights and they include the rights to:

  • The satisfaction of basic needs
  • Redress
  • Education
  • A healthy environment.
