E-commerce regulations published

28 Sep 2021


On September 23, 2021, the Electronic Commerce Regulation was published in the Official Gazette.

The purpose of the Regulation is to strengthen the transparency and quality of the information provided to consumers on e-commerce platforms regarding the characteristics, essential features, price of the products and services offered, as well as any other relevant information to encourage informed decision-making.

The Regulation is applicable to sellers that offer goods or services on e-commerce platforms in exchange for a price or fee, and to operators of e-commerce platforms (“Marketplace”) where products or services of third party sellers are offered.

Given the above, all suppliers and marketplaces that offer goods or services on the Internet must necessarily adapt to the new obligations imposed by this Regulation, which becomes effective 6 months after its publication in the Official Gazette.

JDF has a team specialized in e-commerce, which can support in updating the terms and conditions, privacy policies and, in general, with the flow of any digital platform, for proper compliance with this Regulation and all applicable regulations for each business.
