Highlights

Consumer protection.An update of EU consumer protection rules will be up for a vote in the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee. It covers, among different issues, penalties for infringements, transparency of online marketplaces (e.g. ratings and reviews), protection for consumers who use 'free' digital services (e.g. apps, social media), doorstep-selling as well as dual quality of products. It is part of the "New Deal for Consumers" package on Tuesday.

Compensation for victims of road accidents. New motor insurance rules to better protect road accident victims will be put to the vote by the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee. Proposed provisions relate to compensating victims when an insurance company goes bankrupt, minimum amount of insurance cover, as well as checks to tackle uninsured drivers on Tuesday.

EU-Singapore free trade agreement. The International Trade Committee will vote on whether to approve a free trade deal with Singapore that would end virtually all tariffs on EU imports to the country. Intellectual property rights, rules of origin and sustainable development clauses are part of the package. In parallel, the committee votes on investor-state dispute settlement between the two parties on Thursday.
