Retailers welcome Common European Sales Law proposals

The British Retail Consortium has welcomed proposals by the European Commission to introduce a new optional Common European Sales Law for online sales.

Sometimes called the 28th regime, it would allow businesses trading online to opt to make sales under a single, EU-wide contract law, rather than having to comply with the different national laws in each of the 27 member states. That would give customers access to a wider choice of goods available online said the BRC.

The new law would be optional for businesses but would provide a common high level of consumer protection for cross-border e-commerce purchases.

BRC director general Stephen Robertson, said:" If the law for selling across the EU is simpler, UK retailers should be able to expand into many more markets.

"This has the potential to boost British exports of goods throughout the EU and so boost growth and jobs in the UK. Britain has all the advantages of language and of having the EU's best developed online market.

"The UK Government must take a constructive approach in the negotiations to produce the maximum benefit for consumers and businesses."
