The Consumer Rights Act is now in force. The Act represents the biggest overhaul of consumer rights legislation in the history of the state. The legislation expressly provides for the regulation of contracts for the sale of goods with a digital element as well as contracts for the supply of digital content and digital services. It also further regulates contracts for the sale of goods and supply of services. It transposes the Revised Sale of Goods Directive, the Contracts for the Supply of Digital Content and Digital Services Directive as well as the so-called Omnibus Directive.
The changes to consumer rights protection are fundamental and far-reaching. The legislation creates clearer rules for business and introduces new and enhanced obligations on traders selling to consumers. The Act also strengthens the rights and remedies available to consumers and significantly increases penalties for non-compliance.
