The article is devoted to the legislation in the field of consumer rights protection in Russia and China.The authors highlighted the issues in the sphere of consumer protection in trading service of theRussian Federation (hereafter — the RF) and the People’s Republic of China (hereafter — the PRC).The article presents a comparative analysis of the legislation of the two countries, identifies prospectsand development trends of the Russian and Chinese legislation in the sphere of consumer protection.A comparison of the provisions of the RF and PRC legislation in the sphere of consumer protectionin trading service is of particular relevance. The main goal of this comparison is to remove the gapsin national legislation, improve its provisions according to the PRC legal practice. The authors ofthe proposed article make conclusions that despite some differences in formulation, the scope ofthe Russian and Chinese laws are practically identical. The study of the Chinese law rules leads tothe conclusion that the legislation may need the relations that are associated with the purchaseand use of goods, performance of works or rendering of services. Consumer protection legislationvaries periodically. Currently it is modernizing. In order to improve the mechanism of consumers’rights protection in Russia, the authors propose to fix the mediation usage at the legislative level,as it is in the PRC. The introduction of this procedure will also contribute to the development of themovement in defense of consumers’ rights, strengthening the role of civil society organizations. Wedeem it expedient to add mediation provision in the sphere of consumer protection into the Law ofthe Russian Federation on the Protection of the Consumers’ Rights. Also it is essential to strengthenthe role of consumer associations in this procedure.
