Welcome to Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection

            OCP is the Montgomery County agency responsible for enforcing consumer protection laws that prohibit unfair and deceptive business acts to ensure a fair marketplace for consumers and businesses.  Our office was established in 1971 and we are proud to have earned national recognition.

            Our investigators have expertise in many types of consumer transactions.  We investigate and resolve consumer complaints, engage in consumer education and outreach, license certain businesses, and administer several programs.  OCP’s dedicated staff is here to be of service to you. We publish an Office Brochure and an Annual Report which describe our commitment to being a responsive and accountable County Government Office.

             I encourage you to consult our webpage or contact our  Office before you have a problem and anytime you are in need of assistance.  This 60 second video from our cable TV show, Consumer Compass, will introduce you to our staff.  Thank you. 





Eric S. Friedman
