The paper comments on the importance of legal instruments in consumer protection field. We focused on the role of the European Commission, as guardian of European Union (EU) law and policies, which may initiate legal procedures to guarantee compliance with EU legislation. Thus, we analysed the provisions of articles 226-228 of the European Community Treaty, presenting the „infringement procedure”. Furthermore, a law case ended with the penalization of Kingdom of the Netherlands which failed to fulfill its obligations stated in Directive 93/13 EEC on unfair terms in consumer contracts, strengthens the imagine on the efficiency of legal instruments for consumers interests protection.
