  • Headnote

    The writer goes over the newly arrived Directive (EU) 2020/1828, which introduced the institution of class action in the EU. He outlines the general architecture of the instrument regarding collective redress and analyses each one of the main provisions pertaining to the protection of the interests of consumer groups. This new piece of legislation, at the same time, repeals Directive 2009/22/EC, abolishing the possibility for one to bring an action for injunction before the court. Hence, the writer illustrates the novel regime established under Directive 2020/1828, meaning the representative actions, which subsequently result in two further remedies: (a) injunctive measures and (b) redress measures. The said remedies have come to substitute the actions for an injunction, provided for in the previous system, contemplated by Directive 2009/22.
