The Washington Consumer Act aims to protect the best interests of consumers by preventing unfair and deceptive trade practices committed by traders of goods and services.

  • RCW 19.86.020 of the Act makes it unlawful for merchants to adopt unfair methods of competition or conduct deceptive acts in commercial activities.
  • RCW 19.86.030 prevents the formation of any trusts or monopolies or price fixing arrangements among traders which possibly prove to be detrimental for consumer interests.
  • Where the Attorney General through his investigation and hearings is convinced of the deceptive trade practices, he may award the affected consumers recovery of damages suffered and also penalize the guilty traders.
