Consumer Rights Training for Retailers - GOODS Course Contents
In this section we take a quick look at basic definitions used in the Consumer Rights Act and who and what the Act applies to.
2. The Consumer Rights Act
This section looks at the Consumer Rights Act regarding goods. It explains the standards which must be met by your products and what you must do if a customer complains about them. It includes a very useful step-by-step guide to the process of handling complaints.
3. Terms and Conditions
This section covers fair wording. It looks at terms and conditions, notices and contracts. It talks about greylisted terms and blacklisted terms. A downloadable pdf explains what shouldn’t be said and what can’t be said. Use of any of these terms is likely to be challenged!
Usually, if a customer complains about a product they’ve bought it can be resolved directly with them, face-to-face. However, sometimes this does NOT resolve the problem. We look at what happens next, including using Alternative Dispute Resolution instead of going to court.

Legislation relating to consumer rights
The Consumer Rights Act 2015

It gives customers a number of new rights and remedies if the products or services they buy fall short of the standards required.
Anyone selling goods, services or digital content should have a thorough understanding of The Consumer Rights Act.
Goods to be of satisfactory quality
(1) Every contract to supply goods is to be treated as including a term that the quality of the goods is satisfactory.
(2) The quality of goods is satisfactory if they meet the standard that a reasonable person would consider satisfactory, taking account of—
(a) any description of the goods,
(b) the price or other consideration for the goods (if relevant), and
(c) all the other relevant circumstances (see subsection (5)).
