Head note

The independence of the regulatory frameworks of the Law 146/1914 "On unfair competition" and the Law 2251/1994 “On consumer protection”, which transposed the Directive 2005/29/EC, is maintained. Prime aim of the latter is to protect the consumer against unfair commerce practices which include, besides the general clause of Article 9c of Law 2251/1994, both misleading and aggressive commercial practices and is not intended to supplement the unfair competition grounds in order to serve also as a legal basis for lawsuits between traders.
