What is the alternative resolution of consumer disputes?
This is a mechanism that allows all consumers to resort to official entities that can assist in the resolution of any conflict with a merchant entity, without first having to open a litigious process in Courts.
What is the role of these entities in conflict resolution?
These entities act as intermediaries between the consumer and the trader who is the target of the complaint. The intermediary can impose a solution on both parties, or try to bring them together so that a solution can be reached. Alternative dispute resolution is, as a rule, less expensive, less formal and faster than the judicial route.
