Law Society of Ireland Gazette – ‘New EU consumer rules come into effect’

28 May 2022

The European Consumer Centre (ECC) Ireland has reminded consumers that new rules on consumer rights come into force across the EU tomorrow (28 May). Directive (EU) 2019/2161, or the Better enforcement and modernisation Directive, amends previous measures contained in some existing EU directives.

The body, which helps Irish consumers with complaints against EU-based businesses, says that the rules contained in a new directive address the challenges posed by digital traders, platforms and marketplaces, and will equip consumer authorities with stronger tools to enforce consumer rights.
