Belgian Code of Economic Law Book - Books IV & V

Book IV 'Protection of competition' and Book V 'Competition and price evolutions' have been introduced in the Belgian Code of Economic Law by 2 laws of 3 April 2013 (Belgian State Gazette 26 April 2013). Entry into force is to be decided by Royal Decree.

By these texts the organisation of the Belgian Competition Authority is revised and this institution is granted powers to supervise price evolutions and to intervene in certain cases. A seminar on both new texts is organised by the VBO on 10 June 2013.

Common European Sales Law

Just published: Un droit de vente européen pour une meilleure protection du consommateur ? Les moyens d’action du consommateur en cas d’inexécution du vendeur, by R. Feltkamp and F. Vanbossele in European Journal of Consumer Law.

In this contribution we further examine the provisions of the Common European Sales Law (CESL) on the remedies of the buyer, specifically in business to consumer context.

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.
