The European Commission has published a roadmap for its evaluation of the Consumer Rights Directive. The roadmap states that the Consumer Rights Directive is particularly relevant to two of the priorities in the Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy: the geo-blocking initiative and the proposals to further harmonise consumer contract rules on remedies for e-commerce and digital content transactions. The evaluation of the Consumer Rights Directive aims to assess its overall impact on the internal market, by assessing its relevance, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness and European added value. The evaluation is due to be completed in Q1 2017.
