The Consumer Council is an independent statutory authority in Hong Kong, established in 1974 and formalised in 1977 under the Consumer Council Ordinance (Cap. 216). Its role is to enhance consumer welfare and empower consumers to protect themselves.[2]

The chairman, vice-chairman, and members of the council are all appointed by the Chief Executive of the HKSAR for renewable terms of two years.[2]

The council is 95 percent funded from government funds, with the remainder coming from sale of materials.[1]
