European Compliance Update: What In-House Counsel Need to Know about the New Deal for Consumers (AKA the next GDPR)

Event Description

Are you ready for the current overhaul of consumer protection regulation in Europe called the ‘New Deal For Consumers’? A series of new rules is reshaping consumer contract law for “smart products” and digital goods, introducing updated obligations and the new concept of “payment with data”. Enforcement will be enhanced, including GDPR-style fines based on annual revenue. Meanwhile, English and European legislators are also tackling sustainability, with regulations that would mandate greener and more sustainable products.

 

Join us at 12pm ET on Thursday, April 28, 2022, as Felix Hilgert, LL.M. and Katie Vickery of Osborne Clarke will:

– provide an overview of the new EU rules;

– Provide a deeper dive on the impact of the new rules in Germany, the UK, and other major European markets; and

– offer practical advice on what in-house counsel need to know to ensure their organizations remain compliant with ever-changing regulatory requirements.

 

Attendees will come away from the program with an understanding of the New Deal for Consumers, other European product compliance rules, and their potential impact on their organization.
