  • Headnote
    Directive 2009/22/EC gave so-called consumer organisations the right to file motions to the courts and public administration bodies in order to achieve termination of unlawful conduct against a consumer. But, due to the transposition of this Directive into the legal order of the Czech Republic these organisations have no right to participate in administrative procedures, they may only bring actions to the courts in relevant cases. This article aims at clarifying of the context of this issue, analysis of the scope of the right that has been established by EU law in favour of consumer organisations and confrontation of conclusions with Czech law in force and common administrative standards in the Czech Republic.
