The bundesrat paves the way for consumer-relevant issues
At its recent meeting, the Bundesrat passed important resolutions aimed at strengthening consumer protection in the country. This is a series of measures designed to make it easier for consumers to enforce their rights if they have been disadvantaged when buying goods or services.
A key point here is the simplification of procedures in disputes between consumers and companies. To this end, a new arbitration board should be created to offer quick and uncomplicated solutions. In addition, consumers will be better protected against unfair business practices in the future in order to counteract any excesses on the part of individual companies.
