Europe's holiday gift to consumers

More consumer news today, as the European Commission reminds us of the passing of the deadline for the introduction of the Consumer Rights Directive. The press release reads:

'Just in time for the holiday period, shoppers across Europe can as of today count on a new set of consumer rights: today marks the deadline for Member States to introduce the European Union’s Consumer Rights Directive into national law. The EU legislation will strengthen consumers' rights in all 28 EU countries, particularly when shopping online. The new rules will for example ensure an EU-wide withdrawal period of 14 days meaning that consumers can return goods for whatever reason if they change their minds.'
