Catalan term or phrase: Eurofinestreta
This comes from a description of an agency:

"El Centre Europeu del Consumidor (CEC) o Eurofinestreta dels consumidors, amb seu a l'ICC, va ésser designat per la Comissió Europea (D.G. Sanitat i Protecció dels Consumidors) per difondre i promoure la "Campanya Nacional de Seguretat Alimentària - 1999".

Consumer Window "em sona" from somewhere deep in the depths of my clogged up mind.

Any further suggestions?

"Eurowindow" for consumers...?
Explanation:
"Eurowindow" seems to be a fairly pervasive neologism throughout the continent, with "Eurofenster," "Eurofenetre," "Eurofinestra," and "Euroventanilla," to name a few.

As for what it does: " EUROVENTANILLA es un Centro de Información y Asesoramiento sobre temas de la Unión Europea: legislación y jurisprudencia, licitaciones y concursos, programas I+D, etc.; poniendo a su disposición un servicio capaz de ayudarle a aprovechar mejor las ventajas que brinda el Mercado Interior." (web site below)
