Ecommerce Europe presents its Position Paper on online platforms entitled “Policy recommendations on the role of online platforms in the e-commerce sector” (April 2016)
The European e-commerce landscape is governed by a plethora of legislation. Ecommerce Europe calls upon lawmakers to facilitate the growth of cross-border ecommerce by adopting an integrated and balanced approach towards e-commerce policies. In a fast developing market it is important that the sector receives room for self-regulation in dialogue with consumer organizations and other stakeholders – a vision the European Commission shares with Ecommerce Europe. In areas where legislation is in place or needs to be developed, Ecommerce Europe calls upon policy makers to engage in a constructive dialogue with all stakeholders in order to ensure the most effective and adapted legal framework to the development of e-commerce in Europe.
