Consultation on Improving Price Transparency and Product Information for Consumers

DBT are consulting on proposals on key areas of consumer information transparency.

On 4 September 2023, the Department of Business and Trade published the launch of a consultation seeking views on proposals on five key areas of consumer information transparency.  The aim is to improve the quality and accessibility of information to allow consumers to make informed choices about the products they purchase.

The areas covered within the consultation are:

  • display of pricing information;
  • hidden fees and drip pricing;
  • fake and misleading reviews;
  • online platforms;
  • online interface orders.

The consultation can be accessed here, and will run until the 15 October 2023.
