The continued refinement of consumer protection in Europe is a special concern of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour (BAK). It supports the EU Commission in principle in the Commission’s efforts to help legal practitioners, through the proposed regulation on geo-blocking, to identify unjustified unequal treatment of consumers in cross-border business transactions more easily and hence facilitate the prosecution of offenders. However, the current status of consultations (common approach with the Council, draft report of the EP Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection) gives rise to concern.
