Consumer education and training are recognised as basic rights in the Portuguese Constitution, Article 60, and in Decree Law Nº 24/96, of 31 July, Article 6. The state, through the Ministry of Economy and Innovation, oversees the development and implementation of such education, in consultation with an advisory Consumer Council, in which consumer associations, trade unions, the National Association of Municipalities, family associations and entrepreneurial associations from the agricultural, commercial and industrial and services sectors participate (Table 2.4).
