Last Thursday, the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA) launched its new corporate identity and new logo at a presentation delivered by the authority’s chairperson Helga Pizzuto in the presence of the Parliamentary Secretary for Consumer Protection Deo Debattista.
Ms Pizzuto said that the new logo reflects the communication between the authority and the citizens of the Maltese islands. “We have chosen a new corporate identity that represents the authority working as one coordinated entity for the service of consumers, traders, importers and interested stakeholders,” she said.
During the event the MCCAA’s new website was also launched. The new portal (see link below), offers easier access to information and an optimised search engine. It also provides the authority with the facility to launch an array of online services that will be launched gradually later this year.
The authority has also strengthened its presence on social media in order to extend its outreach through today’s digital channels.
Dr Debattista said that the government is committed to strengthening its services to consumers and sellers.
“There is more awareness on the need for authorities such as the MCCAA that work for the benefit of all,” he said.
“The government will assure that this authority’s services towards the people will continue to improve and develop at par with the latest technology.”
The MCCAA was established in 2011 and is entrusted with the work of the Office for Competition, the Office for Consumer Affairs, the Standards and Metrology Institute and the Technical Regulations Division.
These four entities work to promote and enhance competition, to protect the consumer, to promote good commercial practices, to ensure product safety on the local market, and to adopt and coordinate standards related to products and services, among others.
