Catching Up? A New Consumer Protection Cooperation Regime for the EU

The FCC “Opts-In” to Consumer Privacy with New Rules for Internet Service Providers

The European Union (“EU”) has long had a focus on consumer protection of EU residents. A new proposed EU regulation is set to improve the cross-border enforcement regime for consumer protection legislation. The new rules will give more teeth to national authorities in EU Member States, allowing them to deal more effectively with cross-border infringements of EU consumer legislation.

These changes are part of a wider programme of reform affecting all businesses operating in the Technology, Media and Telecoms sectors in Europe.
