European Commission seeks feedback on EU consumer law 'fitness check'

The European Commission has launched a call for evidence seeking feedback on its "fitness check". The "fitness check" analyses whether further action is required to ensure an equal level of fairness both online and offline.

Three pieces of legislation are being evaluated in the "fitness check": the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive 2005/29/EC, the Consumer Rights Directive 2011/83/EU and the Unfair Contract Terms Directive 93/13/EEC. 

The aim of the call for evidence is to determine whether these pieces of legislation ensure a high level of protection in the digital environment. Feedback must be provided by 14 June.
