Agency Partners

The Consumer Protection Branch coordinates with multiple agencies, each of which provides consumer protection in a variety of areas.  The Branch works closely with agencies like the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U. S. Postal Inspection Service, and the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  These partnerships enable the Consumer Protection Branch to expand its enforcement efforts on behalf of the American consumer.
