The University of Leuven has conducted a study on alternative means of consumer redress other
than redress through ordinary judicial proceedings. It consists of a comparative report
and 28 national
(for the EU-25, Australia, Canada and the US). The study includes an overview of the national
legal provisions for collective redress.
The Commission has also launched a new study focusing specifically on collective redress in the EU.
The call of the tender can be found under tenders.
The Commission will use the results of both studies as well as information provided by stakeholders
to decide whether, and if so, to which extent, an initiative on collective redress is required at EU level.
