Procuraduria Federal Del Consumidor
On February 5, 1976, the Federal Law of Consumer Protection was passed enriching the social rights of the Mexican people, and for the first time establishing rights for the consuming population. Out of this the National Institute of the Consumer and the Federal Attorney’s office of the Consumer were born. This social service with a juridical component functions with the administrative authority to promote and protect the interests of the consuming public. Mexico is the second Latin-American country to have a Federal Law of Consumer Protection and the first one to have a special Attorney’s office.
