EU's 2014-2020 consumer programme

Ministers reached an agreement on a partial general approach concerning the EU's consumer programme for the 2014-2020 period. The aim of the programme is to ensure a high level of consumer protection, to empower consumers and to place the consumer in the heart of the internal market. The programme will contribute to protect the health, safety, legal and economic interests of consumers, as well as to promote their right to information, education and to organise themselves in order to safeguard their interests.  It will complement national consumer policies of the member states.
The Commission communication "A budget for Europe 2020" of 29 June 2011 proposed to allocate EUR 175 millions (in constant 2011 prices) to the consumer programme for the period 2014-2020. The final financial envelope for the implementation of the programme will be decided in the context of the overall EU budget for the next cycle of financial perspectives.
