CFA member organisations represent consumers in the areas that are priorities for them and their members.
CFA also represents consumers directly through its advocacy activities – although these are limited at present due to a lack of resources.
One way in which CFA advances the consumer interest is through nominating and supporting consumer representatives.[ilink url=”http://consumersfederation.org.au/standards-2/”] Standards representatives[/ilink] bring a consumer perspective on product and process standards through Standards Australia committees. Other consumer representatives are nominated by CFA to a range of government and industry processes. These representatives are supported by the CFA membership and wider network.
