In December 2020, Consumers’ Organization of Macedonia Skopje (COM), Centre for Consumer Protection (CEZAP) and National Consumer Organization of Serbia (NOPS) started the project: „ Developing Civil Society partnership with business: Service driven model for mobilisation of financial sources“, funded by Balkan Civil Society Development Network Skopje (BCSDN Skopje).
The project will last until end of October 2021. The main project outcome is to build capacities of the regional network to promote and implement an innovative model of certification of the companies, after fulfilling the certain criteria in 6 areas to become recognised as a Consumers’ friendly companies. The certification and a register of certified companies in 3 countries would offer added visibility to companies that are investing in consumer and environmentally friendly behavior. At the regional level we expect that the project will support developing a consumer-friendly certificate scheme and mechanism for handling consumer complaints, improve consumers’ confidence, built capacities of the businesses to become more consumer friendly and increased contribution to public policies for consumers‘ and environmental protection.
