Protecting European consumers

The basic aim of consumer protection policy in the EU is to inform and empower consumers, ensuring they are equally well-protected across the 27 EU Member States with the European Commission working in synergy with the National Authorities. EU rules curb abusive practices, harmonize legislation in the financial services and monitor product safety (via the RAPEX alert system).

This YouTube video explains more about the European Union’s consumer protection policy, which is also at the basis of the CE marking legislation.

What do you think? Are these all just nice words? Is the policy that is outlined sufficient? I’d like to hear back from you.
