Consumer rights in the internal market (2009/05 E)
The European Commission s proposed consumer rights directive will help simplify European rules and improve the functioning of the internal market. The Social and Economic Council's Committee for Consumer Affairs (CCA) agrees with much of the proposal, although it would like to see clarification of various points. Some aspects of the proposal fall short with respect to consumer protection, however, particularly when viewed from the vantage point of Dutch consumer legislation. These are the observations of the CCA in its advisory report Consumentenrechten in de interne markt [Consumer rights in the internal market].
