Collective Redress

Collective redress is an umbrella term to denote systems designed to compensate multiple parties for a common infringement. It includes a wider category of redress mechanisms than those based on litigation: it can also involve public enforcement by regulators or ombudsmen (see also the Consumer Protection Cooperation Regulation), the use of ADR mechanisms, or various compensation schemes or funds (see no-fault compensation).

See also class action, group actions, representative actions.
