Consumer Protection Unit

About CPU

The Consumer Protection Unit (CPU) was established and functions under the social protection directorate in 2011 with a view of controlling and monitoring of the quality and standards of imported and export cargo against the existing regulations and standards of the country. It ensures all the Conditional Imports are conform to the required standard and any non compliance goods will be reshipped or destroyed. Consumer and Environmental Protection Unit is the dedicated IPR Office of SL Customs for Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) related issues on imports and exports. Any "Action for Application" on Intellectual Property Right infringement will be handled by us. We also contribute to protect the environment through the enforcement of obligation of international Conventions through collaboration with other related agencies. In addition to Law Enforcement it conducts awareness programmes for Customs staff together with other stake holders.


Objectives of CPU
  • Coordinate and regularize Social Protection functions carried out by Sri Lanka Customs on Behalf of other agencies
  • Protection of consumer rights and implementation of related laws
