During its February II session, the European Parliament is expected to vote its first-reading position on two legislative proposals: a draft recast regulation on the supplementary protection certificate (SPC) and a draft regulation on the unitary SPC, both concerning medicinal products. These parallel proposals are part of a broader package on improving intellectual property rights.

During the February II plenary session, Parliament is set to vote on a provisional agreement reached between the European Parliament and the Council on the proposed regulation on data collection and sharing relating to short-term accommodation rental services. The proposal aims to facilitate registration of hosts and their short-term rental units (such as houses, apartments and rooms). It also aims to reduce inconsistencies in how online platforms share data with public authorities, and help to increase ...

Most products are not designed with their life cycle environmental impacts in mind, and it is difficult for consumers and economic operators to make sustainable choices when buying products. The EU still lacks an overarching legislative framework laying down rules for sustainable production and consumption of all products. Ecodesign refers to the integration of environmental sustainability considerations into the characteristics of a product, and into processes throughout its value chain. On 30 March ...

On 29 November 2023, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a directive amending Directive (EU) 2015/2302 on package travel and linked travel arrangements, to improve protection for travellers and simplify and clarify certain aspects of the current directive. The Commission announced in a 2020 communication on a new consumer agenda that it would look into revising the directive following the turmoil caused by the mass cancellations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposal is the result ...

During the first decades of European integration, the European Community's rudimentary consumer policy was based on the premise that the common market would automatically serve consumers, offering them more choice at affordable prices. Starting in the 1960s, but particularly in the 'long 1970s', Community institutions pushed for more elaborate measures to safeguard the health, safety, and economic interests of consumers. This briefing sheds light on the role of the European Parliament in the development ...

Alternative dispute resolution

Briefing 06-02-2024

On 17 October 2023, the Commission adopted a proposal for a directive amending Directive 2013/11/EU on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) for consumer disputes, as well as Directive 2015/2302/EU on package travels, Directive 2019/2161/EU on better enforcement and modernisation of Union consumer protection rules, and Directive 2020/1828 EU on representative actions for the protection of the collective interests of consumers. ADR is defined as settling a complaint out of court with the assistance ...

Directive (2013/11/EU) on alternative dispute resolution for consumer disputes (the 'ADR Directive') provides an out-of-court solution for consumers to resolve disputes on goods and services purchased from traders established in the single market. Together with Regulation (EU) No 524/2013 on online dispute resolution for consumer disputes (the 'ODR Regulation'), the ADR Directive forms a horizontal EU-level framework for alternative dispute resolution. The significant increase of online sales, in ...

The impact assessment (IA) underpinning the revision of the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) framework presents a robust intervention logic. It puts forward four policy options (including a non-regulatory option) with varying degrees of ambition; however, the description of the different policy options would have benefited from more depth and detail. The IA assesses the policy options in terms of their economic, social and environmental impacts and their effects on fundamental rights. While large ...

Opatření na ochranu spotřebitele

Fakta a čísla o EU 29-01-2024

Cílem evropských opatření na ochranu spotřebitele je chránit zdraví, bezpečnost a hospodářské a právní zájmy evropských spotřebitelů bez ohledu na to, ve které části EU žijí, cestují nebo nakupují. Ustanovení předpisů EU upravují jak fyzické transakce, tak internetový obchod a obsahují obecně platná pravidla i ustanovení zaměřená na konkrétní produkty, včetně léků, geneticky modifikovaných organismů, tabákových výrobků, kosmetiky, hraček a výbušnin.

While efforts to regulate artificial intelligence (AI) both globally and in the United States intensify, the prospects for broad Congress-passed legislation remain doubtful. In October 2023, President Biden issued a wide-reaching executive order on safe, secure and trustworthy AI. It is a positive step, but implementation will be challenging.
