Swedish Trade Federation questions proposal from the European Commission
The consumer contract legislation varies in the EU countries, and this has caused great costs for the traders. In addition, consumers have not felt safe when shopping online from another country.
For this reason, the European commission presented a number of changes last year, (read more about the proposal in the press release on the Commission's website).
Swedish Trade Federation believes that there is no balance between the consumer protection and the interests of the traders, and that all proposed changes benefits the consumer, even though the need for an improved consumer protection has not been detected.
