European Commissions calls for practical evidence on operation of State-based collective redress mechanisms (by 15 Aug)
"Call for evidence on the operation of collective redress arrangements in the Member States of the European Union", May 2017
The European Commission is assessing how the Commission Recommendation of 11 June 2013 on common principles for injunctive and compensatory collective redress mechanisms in the Member States concerning violations of rights granted under Union Law is being implemented in practice...
Since the Report of the Commission, following the Recommendation, should be based on practical experience, the form of the call for evidence has been chosen. Therefore, with this public consultation the Commission seeks to gather practical experiences of the stakeholders with the implementation of the Recommendation.
In parallel to the consultation, a study is carried out by the external contractor. Within the framework of the study the contractor is carrying out targeted in-depth interviews with stakeholders, which thus creates an additional consultation channel.
Deadline: 15 Aug 2017
Online Consultation Questionnaire available here.
