CONSUMER RIGHTS DIRECTIVE: HEARING WITH NATIONAL PARLIAMENTS

The EP held a hearing in late March with National Parliaments on the proposal for a Consumer Rights Directive (2008/0196/COD). The focus of the debate was the appropriate level of consumer protection and the Commission's full harmonisation approach. The Bar supports targeted full harmonisation, leaving issues such as remedies to Member State national law. The EP is aiming for an adopted report on the proposal by the summer.
