Consumer Protection in Thailand

Consumer Protection in Thailand

To do business in Thailand, as in most countries, one must obtain a business license to represent himself or herself to the public.  This process enables tracking of taxes and the regulation of an industry for consumer protection.  In fact, Thailand has a consumer protection law proclaimed by:

Consumer Protection Act
B.E. 2522 (1979)
BHUMIBOL ADULYADEJ, REX.,
Given on the 30th day of April B.E. 2522;
Being the 34th Year of the Present Reign.

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej is graciously pleased to proclaim that:
Whereas it is expedient to have a law on consumer protection;
Be it: therefore, enacted by the King, by and with the advice and consent of the National
Legislation Assembly acting as the National Assembly as follows:

This Act is called the “Consumer Protection Act, B.E. 2522”.

We have not quoted that here in its entirety as this can be found at the Thailand Law Forum, which contains a lot of great information about the laws of Thailand.
