Detail of feedback received
Responses to the consultation have been published.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 is expected to come into force in October 2015.
We’re seeking views on draft guidance on our new powers to make it easier for consumers and businesses to gain access to redress for harm caused by infringements of competition law.
The powers (should they come into force) will also allow parties who have breached competition law to submit a voluntary redress scheme to the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) for approval.
This consultation will be of interest to:
- anyone who has an interest in competition law investigations
- businesses and their legal advisors
