Head note

The authors of this article take the view that the Dutch Law on Unfair Commercial Practices and a few sector specific laws on supervision and regulations for the financial sector overlap.

The authors argue that it has therefore become gradually more complicated for companies offering financial services to understand to which of these regulations they are subject, in what way they relate to each other and which consequences follow from the violations of these provisions in a contract with a consumer.
