    Implementation of the Omnibus Directive into Belgian Law leads to New Consumer Protection Rules

    On 28 May 2022, the Belgian Act of 8 May 2022 implementing the Omnibus Directive (Directive (EU) 2019/2161) into Belgian law entered into force. The Omnibus Directive introduces a number of modernised and new consumer protection rules and aims to strengthen the protection of consumer rights through increased transparency obligations as well as a more strict and consistent application of enforcement measures. The Belgian Act was published in the Belgian Official Gazette on 2 June 2022 and it does not provide for a transition period. It is therefore important for undertakings falling within the scope of the new consumer protection rules to review existing transparency measures as well as contractual and commercial practices in order to bring these up to date and in line with the new rules.
