Online and distance sale of goods and supply of digital content

We're seeking your views on 2 European Commission proposals on the online and distance sale of tangible goods and supply of digital content.



The European Commission have published 2 proposals on digital content and the online and other distance sale of goods. The aim of the proposals is to reduce barriers to the growth of cross-border e-commerce in the European Union as part of the digital single market.

We’re seeking views on the impact the proposals will have on existing UK law, business and consumers. As such the call for views will be of most interest to:

  • law groups
  • businesses
  • business representatives
  • consumer groups

Email your views, including a brief description of your interest in the proposals, to consumer.dsm@bis.gsi.gov.uk by 10 February 2016.
