Head note

This article summarizes the decision of the Court of Justice. As the UCP Directive offers maximum harmonisation, the Belgian legislator must remove the absolute prohibition on joint offers from the Belgian legal system, even when combined offers may constitute an unfair commercial practice in specific circumstances. The author points out that the Belgian legislator will remove the absolute prohibition in the upcoming revision of the Belgian Trade Practices Act. [Note: this new revision has already entered into force.]
