Stage of legislative progress 

In force

Implementation Act

The legislation is directly enforceable in Denmark, thus no implementation Act is needed

Implementation date 


Responsible body/bodies (art. 7 (1) GBR)
 MS must designate one or more bodies for its adequate and effective enforcement. This can include courts or administrative authorities (recital 35 GBR).

The Danish customers' ombudsman

Enforcement measures (art. 7 (2) GBR)
 MS must lay down rules setting out the measures applicable to infringements. These measures must be effective, proportionate and dissuasive.

The enforcement measures follow the Danish Marketing Practice Act, which is assessed to be effective, proportionate and dissuasive enough

 MS must designate one or more bodies responsible for providing practical assistance to consumers in the case of a dispute between a consumer and a trader arising from the application of the GBR
