Consumer Societies

The Consumer Network

The Consumer Network provides a forum where consumers can share their views and concerns with each other and with the CCC, and through which they can participate in regulatory and policy matters.  It also provides a means for the CCC to consult with consumers and to conduct surveys with them.

The CCC invites individual consumers and consumer associations in utility industries that the PUCSL regulates to participate in the Network.  It may also invite other consumer organizations to participate, as it sees fit.  Consumers can contact the Network by writing to it.

The CCC holds an annual meeting of the Consumer Network to which all members are invited, and may also organize other workshops as part of consultation exercises. The CCC may also contact members of the Network directly by email or in writing to invite comments on matters under consideration, or may post these on the website for comment by Network members.

The CCC is particularly concerned to ensure that consumers in more remote areas are given full opportunities to participate in its work. The Network therefore makes full use of information technology to promote dialogue between its members and the CCC.

In this regard, the Commission has initiated establishment of regional consumer societies and, as at the date of this notice, has established consumer societies island-wide.
