Consumer goods guarantees in the DCFR

Twigg-Flesner, Christian


Christian Twigg-Flesner


This article examines the provisions on consumer guarantees as contained in the Draft Common Frame of Reference (DCFR). It will be argued that while some of these provisions may seem sensible at first sight, there appears to be no clear justification for their adoption. Drawing on the wider literature on the function of consumer guarantees, it will be suggested that the DCFR provisions have failed to take into account relevant empirical findings and that some of these provisions cannot be supported on the basis of this literature. The limited influence of the DCFR provisions on consumer guarantees on the Acquis review is noted.
