Objectives

  • The first objective consist in exchanging best practices and training consumer organisations to build enforcement strategies as unlawful practices often affect not only their own country, but the same or similar problems often exist in other countries or are a EU-wide practice. To counter this, the project will further foster and maintain a strong network of lawyers in national consumer associations across the EU.
  • The second objective of the project is to assess the impact of the consumer specific rules of the Rome I Regulation on applicable law and the Brussels I Regulation on jurisdiction in cross-border enforcement of consumer rights.
  • The third objective is to establish an online ‘Knowledge Platform’ to compile information which can serve as a valuable basis for improving enforcement of consumer law within Europe and across borders.
