On the 15th of March every year, the World Consumer Rights Day raises global awareness about consumer rights and needs.

Celebrating this day is a chance to demand that the rights of all consumers are respected and protected, and to protest against market abuses and social injustices which undermine those rights.

CEN, CENELEC together with their Partner organization ANEC – The European consumer voice in standardization – mark this day with their joint #BetterDigitalWorld infographic. In a fast changing technological environment, consumers need to be aware of their rights when it comes to privacy, data protection, or indeed cyber threats. In this respect CEN, CENELEC and ANEC join forces in developing standards, which create a fair and secure digital market place.

On the occasion of the World Consumer Rights Day, ANEC also launched their YouTube channel with a first video on how ANEC raises standards for consumers. Have a look here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn9PdTlgdP0
