The Consumer Protection Committee (CPC; Chinese: 行政院消費者保護會; pinyin: Xíngzhèngyuàn Xiāofèizhě Bǎohùhuì) is the operative unit of the Department of Consumer Protection of the Executive Yuan of the Republic of China which is responsible for consultation, discussion, and review of important consumer protection policies, laws and regulations, mechanisms, and enforcement outcomes, as well as cross-agency coordination in Taiwan.[1]

History[edit]

The CPC was originally created on 1 July 1994 as the Consumer Protection Commission. On 1 January 2012, it was restructured with the Executive Yuan to become the Consumer Protection Committee.[2][3]

Administration[edit]

The CPC composition is made up of one chairman and eleven to nineteen commissioners with terms of 3 years. These commissioners are nominated by the Executive Yuan and are appointed by the President. The Vice President of the Executive Yuan chairs the CPC, and the commissioners include eight senior officials of relevant government agencies, three representatives of national consumer protection groups, two presidents of nationwide enterprises, two scholars, and three experts. The commission meeting holds each month, but the Chairman has the right to convene unscheduled meetings when necessary.[4]

The top civil bureaucrat is the Secretary General of the administrative departments.[5]
