The project

BEUC, the European Consumer Organisation, has been awarded with a grant under the European Commission’s call 2013 “specific programme civil justice 2007-2013 (JUST/2013/JCIV/AG)” to continue the activities of the Consumer Justice Enforcement Forum under a new project named CoJEF II, which started on 01 of March 2014 and will run for two years.

What is the project about?

  • The COJEF II project aims to strengthen enforcement of EU and national consumer laws by enhancing networking and training among consumer organisations.
  • Enabling these organisations to better use tools to effectively enforce consumer rights throughout the European Union is the central task of the project.
  • This will be achieved by exchanging best practices, sharing experience and training consumer organisation lawyers to develop enforcement strategies which include problem analysis and solution mechanisms in both a national and European perspective while exploring and better exploiting cooperation between consumer organisations, public authorities and other actors.
  • This project builds on the conclusions of the Consumer Justice Enforcement Forum (CoJEF) project (2011-2013) which received ‘Civil Justice’ programme funding, 2007-2013 (Grant Agreement JUST/2010/JCIV/AG/0017-30-CE-0422156/00-45).
