Green Paper on policy options for progress towards a European Contract Law for consumers and businesses

— filed under: , ,

As part of the EU's action to tackle bottlenecks in the Single Market and to boost growth, the European Commission carried out a public consultation on bringing more coherence to contract laws in Europe - the rules that apply to businesses and consumers buying and selling goods or services. The seven-month consultation closed on 31 January. The Commission will now examine the 181 responses received so far and evaluate policy options on the basis of the results. A Commission proposal is due to be made in the autumn. The goal is to make it easier and less costly for businesses, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to do business abroad and to enable consumers to reap the full benefit of the Single Market while maintaining or improving their protection.
