Position Paper e-Regulations; Ecommerce Europe’s Proposal for Sustainable Growth of E-commerce in Europe

Shares

Europe is still a patchwork of national markets and the absence of a truly harmonised regulatory framework in Europe hinders the further development of cross-border e-commerce and undermines consumer trust. Important topics for discussion include the general rules governing e-commerce transactions, consumer protection, alternative (online) dispute resolution, electronic signatures, diverging VAT systems, diverging
distribution systems and e-privacy.

In this position paper, Ecommerce Europe sets out its ideas on the steps that need to be taken to create an uniform, effective, flexible and efficient regulatory framework that stimulates trust in (cross-border) e-commerce transactions.
