|Abstract: || 本論文針對我國消費者保護官之制度加以研究探討之目的，是想要藉此喚起大家對消費者保護法及相關法規之注意。由於台灣近幾年爆發多次嚴重食安事件，諸如毒澱粉、黑心食用油、問題奶粉及毒雞蛋等重大食安事件，造成人心惶惶，聞之色變，成為媒體關注焦點，更成為社會關心話題。但為何食安事件層出不窮，無法有效解決？問題癥結在那裡？為何每次事件發生時總是雷聲大雨點小？最後隨著時間的流逝而漸漸被淡忘，如此周而復始，不斷重複發生，未曾記取人民當初切身之痛，也未曾根本解決民眾食安及其他消費爭議問題，究竟是民意機關沒有發揮監督政府功能？抑或政府機關失去自我反省檢討能力？還是我們的消費者保護法規制度出現問題？有待加以探討研究！ 本論文研究方法，採用一般通用的研究方法，亦即歸納分析法、比較分析法及文獻探討法來進行。在論文撰擬之前，歷經長時間資料搜集、研讀、探討及比較分析階段，搜集資料包羅萬象，包含網路資訊、已發表之博士及碩士論文資料、平面媒體新聞資料及法規資料，以及學者專家之著作或論述等，皆是本論文取材之來源，經由綜合整理後，並不斷加以探討及比較分析出結果，作為論述之依據，或是歸納分析出一些觀點，作為研究成果。 本論文希望針對問題深入研究分析，尤其以消費者保護官居消費者保護法中關鍵角色，更是關鍵問題之核心，消費者保護法所賦予消費者保護官之職權及角色，有無須隨社會環境變遷而進行檢討修正之必要？消費者保護法及相關法規是否也應與時俱進適時作檢討修正？以符合廣大消費者殷切之期盼與迫切之需要！ 本論文針對消費者保護官制度加以探討研究，並與納稅者權利保護官及少年保護官比較分析探討，且參考瑞典消費者保護官制度之優點，認為我國消費者保護官制度有以下問題須加以檢討修正： 一、編制人力單薄，難以發揮功能。 二、無專責單位，難以執行業務。 三、無獨立預算，難以推展業務。 四、職權繁雜，難以發揮專長。 本論文對於前述問題最後提出總結論，具體建議修正現行消費者保護法第三十九條規定：「行政院、直轄市、縣（市）政府應置消費者保護官若干名。消費者保護官任用及職掌之辦法，由行政院定之。」，將本條第一項條文：「行政院、直轄市、縣（市）政府應置消費者保護官若干名。」，修正分為二項，第一項明確規定行政院應成立消費者保護委員會，統籌督導中央各目的主管機關辦理消費者保護業務，並視業務需要置足額消費者保護官辦理業務。第二項則明文規範直轄市應置消費者保護官至少八名、縣（市）政府應置消費者保護官至少四名。直轄市、縣（市）政府並應設消費者保護專責單位辦理消費者保護業務，受消費者保護官督導，藉以充實消費者保護業務人力，同時彰顯政府重視消費者權益，並證明政府捍衛消費者權益之決心，故投入更多人力資源保護消費者權益。至於本條第二項條文：「消費者保護官任用及職掌之辦法，由行政院定之。」，則建議參考瑞典消費者保護官制度之優點，以及納稅者權利保護官與少年保護官制度之長處，予以修正後，將消費者保護官之任用及職權明文分別規範於本條第三項及第四項條文中，並將職權予以簡化，使消費者保護官更具專業化，而原授權訂定之「消費者保護官任用及職掌辦法」，則配合予以廢止。其他條文及相關法規，則須配合本條文之修正，而予以適時修正。 本論文以上建議，期望給予中央主管機關作為將來修正消費者保護法及相關法規參考，也希望中央主政者能夠儘快啟動修法機制，以保障消費者權益，造福全國廣大消費者群眾。|
