Consumer Detriment

Defeating consumer detriment is at the heart of good policy making in the field of consumer protection. DG SANCO has carried out a study to analyse and estimate consumer detriment . The developed methodology will enable to identify where consumers are suffering detriment and assess the impact of policy initiatives on consumer detriment. The methodology will thereby assist in implementing a policy regime which promotes the interests of consumers in an effective way.

A handbook for policy officers offering guidance on how to apply the consumer detriment methodology in the context of impact assessments is available here.
