The consumer protection in the Slovak Republic as well as in the European Union is an important and currently widely debated area of Law. With the exception of the so-called ‘minimum standard of protection’ provided to the consumer as established in the relevant Directives adopted within the European Union and implemented by the individual Member States, the national law can provide a more extensive protection. In this contribution, the author explores the most recent amendment to the regulation of consumer law in effect from the second half of 2014. This amendment implements the new Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council No. 2011/83/EU, as well as extends the consumer protection in certain areas as a result of the implementation of the relevant case law of the general courts of the Slovak Republic.
