- Clarification -The Stichting Reclame Code is authorized to act against unfair commercial practices, as it has been appointed as an organisation with a legitimate interest based on Section 6 Act on Enforcement Consumer protection (Wet Handhaving Consumentenbescherming) and Section 1 Decree appointing organisations with a legitimate interest (Besluit Aanwijzing instanties met een rechtmatig belang). Please note that based on the Dutch Advertising Code (Nederlandse reclame code), not only consumers, but also competitors can file a complaint for the Advertising code commission. Besides the Stichting Reclame Code, the Consumentenautoriteit exercises control over and can act against unfair commercial practices.
