History

The formation of the Department of Consumer and Employment Protection (DOCEP) on 1 July 2001 brought together three Western Australian Government agencies: the Ministry of Fair Trading, the Department of Productivity & Labour Relations and WorkSafe Western Australia.

The Department had six divisions: Consumer Protection, Labour Relations, WorkSafe, Office of the Director General, and Corporate Services. The Technical and Safety Division of the Office of Energy was also incorporated into the Energy Safety Division.

The Department was abolished when a new Department of Commerce was formed on 1 January 2009. All divisions within DOCEP were transferred to the new Department.
