The American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU) welcomes the European Commission’s initiatives to improve the quality and coherence of European contract law in the framework of the Better Regulation Agenda. Extending the scope to off-line sale contracts is a step in the right direction but the proposed directive remains unbalanced.

The European institutions must devote attention to procedural aspects to strike the right balance between consumers and traders. These efforts will ensure that the proposed rules facilitate easier online and off-line cross-border consumer transactions, benefitting business, consumers and society as a whole.
