15-06-2012

This Briefing Paper deals with the remedies open to buyers in sale contracts between businesses and consumers under the Proposal for a Common European Sales Law (CESL). It includes a short overview of the types of remedies and their constituent elements following the structure of art. 106 CESL. The remedies of the CESL are compared, on the one hand, with those of various international instruments in the field and, on the other hand, with particular aspects of the law of the EU Member States. Finally, proposals for improving the current system of remedies under the Proposal are suggested.
