Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act - Inclusion of Financial Products and Services

The Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act (CPFTA) came into effect in March 2004. The CPFTA seeks to protect consumers who lack the expertise or financial resources to guard against unfair practices, and to empower consumers who encounter unfair practices to obtain civil remedy.

As part of an overall review by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), MAS has worked with MTI to include financial products and services under the CPFTA. MTI conducted a public consultation from September to October 2007 on proposed legislative amendments to include financial products and services under CPFTA.
