Consumer Protection


The Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) is the agency responsible for protecting consumers through enforcing the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Order, 2011 (CPTFO).  

The Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Order, 2011 (CPTFO) protects consumers against any unfair practices by sellers. It covers conducts such as:

1. Deceiving or misleading consumers

2. Making false claims

3. Taking advantage of consumer who is not in position to protect his own interest or is not reasonably able to           understand the transaction

Price Control


The Department is responsible for the implementation of the Price Control Act, Chapter 142, as well as the administrative implementation of the setting of maximum prices on selected foods items during festive seasons. It hopes to protect the welfare of consumers in Brunei Darussalam, especially the low-income earners.

Monitoring of prices of price-controlled goods and a selected number of basic necessity items is carried out by the Price Inspectors through inspections on a regular basis involving business premises such as supermarkets and grocery stores in all four districts throughout the country. In addition, spot-checks are also carried out on a random basis on business premises, as well as upon receiving consumers' reports.
