The Act transposes the EU directive concerning dishonest trade practices related to transactions between enterprises and consumers.

The aim is to enhance the functioning of the internal market, to render international trade easier for enterprises, to harmonise the level of consumer protection of Member States and to make consumer rights clearer. The Act enters into force on 12 December 2007.
