Consumer Rights Directive

The EP is making progress on its analysis of the 2008 proposal for a Consumer Rights Directive (2008/0196/COD).


The Legal Affairs Committee has produced a Working Document, indicating support for the Bar’s long-standing approach of targeted full harmonisation, and the lead committee, Internal Market (IMCO) will produce its first report before the summer. The plan is for the EP to give its definitive collective view by the end of the year. The Bar’s European Group (BEG) discussed the proposal in depth at its recent annual conference in Paris, dedicated on this occasion to Consumer Law.
