Belgian Code of Economic Law - Book II & VII

A first part of the Belgian Code of Economic Law is now law (State Gazette 29/3/13). The published part contains Book II with some general principles (e.g. the principle of freedom of economic activity) and Book VIII with provisions on quality of products and services. The other parts are soon to follow.

The code aims at bringing more transparency and consistency in the current disparate set of rules.

R. Feltkamp worked together with Prof. K. Byttebier (PREC VUB / Everest) and F. Vanbossele (BuCo VUB) on delivering a first text which was then further adapted in light of current policy options.
