Practical Consumer Protection Act Workshop

Practical Consumer Protection Act Workshop 2017-12-07T07:00:57+00:00

Looking for a Consumer Protection Act workshop to help you comply with the Consumer Protection Act (CPA)? The CPA has been law in South Africa for some time. We now have a good understanding of the practical impact on organisations. It has had a big impact in some areas, and not such a big impact in others. The question is what are the practical things that you should have done (or must do) to protect consumers.

Attend a presentation, seminar, workshop, or executive briefing presented by an expert with practical experience. We also offer an eCourse on this topic. 


  • Understand how consumer protection impacts your organisation and its business
  • Be aware of the risks
  • Get an overview of consumer protection laws
  • Fast track your consumer protection compliance efforts
  • Prioritise your next steps
  • Become sufficiently familiar with the general content of consumer protection laws to discharge your duties
  • Understand the context of consumer protection laws and how they interact
  • Be aware of the challenges and the opportunities
