EU modernises consumer rights and improves their enforcement

The EU is improving the protection of consumers’ rights. Member states’ ambassadors meeting in the Council’s Permanent Representatives Committee agreed today on the Council’s position on a draft directive which amends four existing EU directives protecting consumers’ interests.

The draft directive covers a wide range of topics. It amends the unfair commercial practices directive 2005/29/EC, the consumer rights directive 2011/83/EU, the unfair contract terms directive 93/13/EEC and the price indication directive 98/6/EC. It was proposed together with a proposal on representative actions for the protection of the collective interests of consumers as part of the ‘New Deal for Consumers’ launched by the Commission in 2017.
