Act amending Chapter 2 of the Consumer Protection Act

2:7ยง A commercial practice shall be regarded misleading if, in its factual context, it omits essential information that a consumer needs to make an informed transactional decision or another decision relating to a product if this omission is capable of leading a consumer to make a purchase decision or another decision relating to a product that he or she would not have made had sufficient information been available. The sufficiency of information shall be assessed relative to the clarity, comprehensibility and timeliness of the information, the limitations of the chosen communication medium, and other action taken by the trader in question to provide consumers with essential information. Information pertaining to the health and safety of consumers must always be provided.
