Still I can repair my plane


  • MIHAIESCU, Nicolaie


Within the framework of the well-known European Commission's strategic vision (aiming to maximize consumer participation and trust in the market by reinforcing consumer safety, enhancing knowledge, stepping up enforcement and securing redress, aligning consumer rights and policies to changes in society and in the economy), and of the substantial corpus of consumer law, and consumer rights (which exist in practice thanks to continuous improving of enforcement and securing redress), consumers are really empowered if they can have their rights properly enforced within a robust framework which allows them to participate actively in the market. It is our duty to look after potential ambiguities in the Consumer Rights Directive, while respecting the meaning and intent of this Directive, and to bring necessary clarification, either in guidance or in the legislation itself, which would be beneficial to consumers.
