It’s this Friday that the Council of Ministers approved a bill relating to market practices and consumer protection. This text regulates in particular certain problems relating to distance sales and sales. In particular, it maintains two sales periods and remove the ban on joint sales.
This approval of a bill also complies with the European directive on unfair commercial practices. As a reminder, our country has been called to order by the European Commission. Indeed, we were still one of the only countries not to practice joint selling. The debate then settled in July of last year through Vincent Van Quickenborne, minister in charge of business and telecommunications. Subsequently, Paul Magnette resumed the debate and had considered that a law to lift this law prohibiting joint sale, was conceivable the condition which is accompanied by a real advantage for the consumer.
We discuss it on the forum.
