Following discussion with the Scottish Government, a Call for Evidence is being issued by the UK Government about the potential costs and benefits of the European Commission’s proposed Regulation for a Common European Sales Law.
The Call for Evidence is issued with the aim of obtaining evidence/views from interested parties to assist Government in developing a future position on the proposed Regulation. The Call for Evidence also seeks specific statistical data and potential costs, benefits and risks of operating an alternative EU contract law regime for cross-border sales alongside national domestic laws in this area. The proposed Regulation will apply in business-to-consumer and business-to-business contracts where one of the parties to the contract is a Small or Medium Enterprise.
