About Us

The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) was created by an order of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors on February 11, 1975.

The purpose of the Commission is to promote and protect the best interests of the consumer public, to encourage the highest standards in the business community and to develop a high level of consumer awareness.

In establishing the CAC, the county seeks to create an environment in which the highest standards of fair and honest market practices prevail and are enforced, and in which the consumer public is assured the fullest value in products and services.

The CAC provides literature to businesses and consumers, and gives educational presentations on consumer issues to community groups.
