Home arrow Law arrow The European Unfair Commercial Practices Directive

Outlook

This volume addresses some of the practical concerns which have arisen since the UCP Directive entered into force. It assesses whether the difficulties which were anticipated in earlier academic writings have in fact materialized and what unexpected issues have arisen since. In doing so, it takes stock of the various policy developments, the growing body of case law developed both by the CJEU and by national courts, the decisions of relevant national enforcement authorities, as well as the legislative debates which have surrounded the implementation of the UCP Directive in Member States. If anything, the contributions to this book bear witness of the complexity of the field of commercial practices and the multitude of issues that deserve further research.
