Head note

According to the author of this article, there are two movements that influence European consumer law. One of the movements tries to steadily improve consumer rights by harmonising the national laws. The other movement focuses on deregulation, on the basis of mutual recognition via codes of conduct. The author holds the view that the UCP Directive is the result of a distinguished compromise between these two approaches.
