This book features a comprehensive overview of the fundamental concepts of consumer rights protection and their practical application. Among the many aspects covered are the conformity with the contract and rights of consumers in case of non-conformity, information requirements, requirements for distance contracts and off-premises contracts, guarantees and other topics. In the book the author provides numerous references to local and EU case-law, states her view on interpretation of legal provisions and gives practical solutions to various consumer law related problem issues.

In addition , the book also provides in-depth review of various forms of unfair commercial practice, gives examples of unfair contractual terms and how to remedy them, as well as provides a brief overview of the main requirements of price indication.

The author also provides historic background for the Directive 90/314/EEC and describes in detail the notions: “consumer”, “package”, “brochure”. The various types of information that must be provided to consumers before the conclusion of a contract are also indicated by the author.

Furthermore, the book also provides guidance in interpreting the Directive 2008/122/EC, since it gives examples of the types of contracts which fall under the scope of this directive. The main requirements for concluding such contracts and the means of exercising the right of withdrawal are also explained.

In addition the author provides interpretation of the Directive 2009/22/EC by describing the measures, which the supervising authority may take in situation, where an infringement is detected. Namely, a supervisory authority may request a written agreement of the breaching party to cease the unlawful commercial practice, to perform activities in order to correct the effects of infringement or it may also apply an administrative penalty.
