What is alternative consumer dispute resolution?

This is a mechanism that allows all consumers to use official entities that can assist in resolving any conflict with a commercial entity, without first having to open a litigation process in Court.

What is the role of these entities in resolving the conflict?

These entities act as intermediaries between the consumer and the trader who is the target of the complaint. The intermediary can impose a solution on both parties, or seek to bring them together so that a solution can be reached. Alternative dispute resolution is, as a rule, less expensive, less formal and faster than the judicial route.
