History

The Bureau of Consumer Affairs was established under the Consumer Affairs Act 1971. It operated as a branch of the Department of Labour and Industry until 1983, when it was combined with other agencies involved in consumer services to form the Department of Consumer Affairs. It was formerly known as the Consumer Protection Bureau. In 1981 the Consumer Affairs Council, for which the Bureau acted as secretariat, was abolished and its functions were transferred to the Bureau.
