On 28 September 2022, the European Commission launched a consultation on consumer rights – adapting out-of-court dispute resolution to digital markets. The consultation aims to collect views of various interested organisations and businesses on how to increase the efficiency of retail markets in the EU, how to ensure a level playing field among traders operating in digital markets, from top-level platforms to smaller players, and how to ensure that consumers enjoy the same level of fairness online and offline. The consultation period runs from 28 September 2022 to 21 December 2022 (midnight Brussels time).
