Electronic Commerce Regulation enters into effect

29 Mar 2022


On March 24, 2022, the Electronic Commerce Regulation, published in the Official Gazette on September 23, 2021, became effective.

The purpose of the Regulation is to strengthen the transparency and quality of the information provided to consumers in Electronic 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 in Electronic Commerce Platforms in exchange for a price or fee, and to operators of Electronic Commerce Platforms (“Marketplace”) in which products or services of third-party sellers are offered.

In view of the above, the recommendation is that all suppliers and Marketplaces that offer goods or services on the Internet, adopt the necessary measures to adapt to the new obligations imposed by this Regulation.

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.
