Consumer protection: Committee welcomes New Consumer Agenda

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 16 novembre 2020

Bruxelles.The Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee is set to discuss the New Consumer Agenda next week. Committee Chair welcomes the long-awaited proposal for EU consumer policy.Consumers need to play a central role in the digital transition. They must have the same rights online and offline. I welcome the wide range of measures announced by the Commission, from addressing platform liability for goods and services on their marketplaces to redefining product safety when it comes to artificial intelligence and data protection.The success of the European Green Deal relies on European consumers: new sustainability requirements for all products on the market, greater reparability and longevity, as well as better labelling will enable sustainable choices.Finally, it is crucial that consumers do not bear the burden of the pandemic. In such extraordinary circumstances, it is vital that consumers are protected, be it from scams, travel-related issues, or having their financial vulnerabilities exploited.I look forward to next week’s discussion with Commissioner Reynders in the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee.” The committee will hold an extraordinary meeting next Thursday, 19 November at 17.00 where Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders will present the EU’s plans for consumer policy until 2025.
