    (“Constantin Brâncoveanu” University, Romania)


The study aims a critical examination of the concept of good faith in relation to unfair terms in consumer contracts present in terms of legal regulations specific to the European Union. Addressing on all matters relating to the origin, meaning and evolution of good faith in the present dependence on unfair terms in consumer contracts, I have followed the extent to which good faith is a universal remedy apparently resorting equally to justice and litigants, being nothing but a measure of morality into the legal. At the same time, the good faith standard acts as valence ethical behavior of the persons, being able to remove unfair terms in contracts concluded between consumers and professionals, its content is influenced by social factors and is emphasized both of moral doctrine and the law
