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 ...

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.

Globālās problēmas, tostarp klimata pārmaiņas, ģeopolitiskie konflikti, demokrātijas principu erozija un sociālā nevienlīdzība, ietekmē cilvēku ikdienas dzīvi un nākotnes perspektīvas. Kopīga Eiropas reakcija nākamo 10 gadu laikā varētu palīdzēt risināt šīs problēmas un sniegt ieguvumus līdz pat 3 triljoniem eiro gadā. Tas ir aptuveni 18 % no ES iekšzemes kopprodukta (IKP), kas atbilst 6700 € uz vienu iedzīvotāju gadā. Atsaucoties uz Eiropas Parlamenta paveikto darbu 2019.–2024. gada sasaukuma laikā ...

EU package travel rules protect travellers who have booked two or more travel services together – typically, a flight and a hotel room. Since the 1990s, the EU has been setting norms in this travel industry sector, to protect consumers and define obligations for package organisers. Since 2004, regulations specific to the mode of transport (such as air, rail or coach) for passenger rights have also gradually been adopted at EU level, creating a comprehensive, albeit not always coherent, framework ...

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 ...
