Checklist for consumers
It is important to know that some consumer rights are fully harmonised in the EU and therefore they are the same in all EU countries, irrespective of the transposition technique in each Member State.
Other consumer rights may differ according to the country of residence of the consumer so you should be aware of any relevant national laws and the potential application of article 6(2) of Rome I regulation.
Traders should inform consumers about choice of law clauses and what the implications are – e.g. higher standards of protection could apply in some areas such as legal guarantees – but it is also important that you as a consumer keep track of your own rights.
