Guidance on unfair consumer terms Directive

The European Commission (the “Commission”) has issued guidance on the interpretation and application of Council Directive 93/13/EEC on unfair terms in consumer contracts (“UCTD”)

The Commission states that the main purpose of the guidance is to present, in a structured way, the interpretation which the Court of Justice of the European Union has provided on the key concepts and provisions of the UCTD, in light of specific cases dealt with by the courts of the Member States. In this way, the Commission aims to increase awareness of this case law amongst all interested parties, such as consumers, businesses, the authorities of the Member States, including national courts, and legal practitioners, across the EU.
