    The author examines how Maltese consumer law and policy evolved in the period between the date when Malta lodged an application to join the European Union and its accession. He analyses inter alia how and to what extent EU consumer law shaped Maltese consumer law. The author examined in particular (i) the Doorstep Contracts Act, and the influence of Directive 85/577/EC; (ii) the two White Papers leading up to the Consumer Affairs Act and the Consumer Affairs Act, as amended; (iii) the amendments to the Consumer Affairs Act in 2000, in order to transpose various EU Directives on consumer protection, such as directives on product liability, unfair contract terms and sale of goods; and (iv) the transposition of Directive 2001/95/EC into Maltese law as the Product Safety Act.
