Blackstone's Guide to the Consumer Rights Act 2014
The Consumer Rights Act is a vital and far-reaching piece of legislation containing provisions specific to contract and consumer law, criminal law, and competition law.
It sets out a much-needed framework to consolidate the key consumer rights surrounding contracts for goods, services, and digital content, as well as the law relating to unfair terms in consumer contracts.
The Act introduces easier routes for consumers and SMEs to challenge anti-competitive behaviour through the Competition Appeal Tribunal, as well as confirming enforcers' powers to investigate potential breaches of consumer law. Ultimately, the Act gives civil courts and public enforcers greater flexibility to take the most appropriate action for consumers when dealing with breaches of consumer law.
