Collective redress as a possible instrument to strengthen the enforcement of EU law

Published: 28 April 2011

Policies & Issues: Legal

Orgalime is of the opinion that the existing systems of redress at national level offer a sufficiently effective legal framework. We do not see a need for the EU to interfere at national level and we question whether the introduction of supranational legislation is complementary with the subsidiarity principle.

Orgalime calls upon the European Commission to avoid measures that will have a major impact on the legislative frameworks of the 27 member states and could introduce further uncertainty to enterprises active in the internal market.
