The letter calls for further action and leadership from the European Commission to make Europe fit for the digital age. The letter also encourages the Commission to establish a European Stakeholders Forum for Digital Consumer Information to facilitate the regular exchange of views and best practices and the development of guiding principles for the digitalization of consumer and product information. Moreover, the Commission is asked to investigate where opportunities exist for digital means as a legally recognized option to provide mandatory product information and adapt the relevant EU regulatory framework including general product and consumer legislations. More information can be found in the letter.
