Commission to launch Green Paper on unfair trading practices

During this period, the Commission
will launch a Green Paper (framing questions and calling for policy or
legislative options) and carry out an impact assessment involving 5 Commission
DGs. Also DG COMP has announced a major study to collect evidence on the impact
of recent retail developments on consumer choice and innovation while DG MARKT
is launching its study on national legal systems covering B2B relations.

 

This would enable the Commission to
issue a legislative proposal before the end of 2013, on the basis that they
succeed in gathering sufficient evidence. On the other hand, a swift
implementation of the framework and uptake by a critical mass of retailers in
the first half of 2013 will enable the Commission to take the self-regulatory
initiative as part of its impact assessment, and increase the chances of
avoiding or influencing the content of the legislation, at least under this
legislature.
