EU to modernise law on consumer protection

The EU is modernising and reinforcing its consumer protection laws. Member states’ ambassadors meeting in the Council’s Permanent Representatives Committee today approved a deal reached between the Romanian presidency and the European Parliament on a draft directive which amends four existing EU directives protecting consumers’ interests.

The 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. Together with a proposal on representative actions for the protection of the collective interests of consumers, it is part of the ‘New Deal for Consumers’ launched by the Commission in 2017.
