Structure, organisations and key people
The Legislative and Governance Forum on Consumer Affairs (CAF) consists of all Commonwealth, State, Territory and New Zealand Ministers responsible for fair trading and consumer protection laws. CAF was formerly known as the Ministerial Council on Consumer Affairs (MCCA).
CAF’s role is to consider consumer affairs and fair trading matters of national significance and, where possible, develop a consistent approach to those issues. The CAF Charter outlines CAF’s function.
Ministers generally meet twice a year, and there are also several official level committees that meet throughout the year to discuss specific aspects of consumer protection. The CAF Charter outlines CAF’s structure.
