Consumer Rights Directive will soon be with us?

Just a short note about a progress in adoption of the Consumer Rights Directive. The Internal Market Committee aproved  overwhelmingly a new text of Consumer Rights Directive, finding a compromise between the three proposals that have been introduced so far. The plenary vote on the new proposal in the European Parliament is expected on Thursday 23rd of June. If it is approved, then there will be a new vote in European Council and hopefully within 2 years we will have a new, improved rules protecting consumers concluding doorstep and distance selling.
