2nd Ferrara Forum on European Consumer and Contract Law

In 2015, it will be 10 years since the Directive 2005/29/EC concerning unfair business-to-consumer commercial practices (see text in EUR-Lex) was adopted. It undoubtedly was, in the context of EU regulations, an essential element of how B2C relationships were governed in the internal market. It has already been several years since the Directive was implemented by EU Member States. However, there are still wide discrepancies in how the Directive is applied which is reflected, in particular, in rulings made by the Court of Justice of the EU. On 8-9 October 2015, a conference was held at the Department of Law of the University of Ferrara as part of the 2nd Ferrara Forum on European Consumer and Contract Law devoted to the impact of the Directive 2005/29/EC on the national laws applicable to contractual and non-contractual obligations. Dr Igor B. Nestoruk delivered a lecture “Poland: The Impact of the UCP Directive on National Contract and Tort Law” at the conference. The presentation included, among other things, examples from the latest national practice, such as rulings on saving insurance policies (“polisolokaty”) or the pobieraczek.pl case.
