World Consumer Rights Day

Background

World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD) is observed on March 15 all over the world. The day has been chosen since it was on 15 March 1962, then US President John F Kennedy made the historical speech to the US Congress upholding Consumer rights. The international consumer movement now marks 15 March every year to raise global awareness about consumer rights. In an organised way, the World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD) first took place on 15 March in 1983 and has now become an annual event for solidarity within the international consumer movement along with creating awareness about consumer rights.
