01-07-2016

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada is currently being translated into the EU’s official languages.

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada is currently being translated into the EU’s official languages. Once the translations are available, the European Commission can propose that the Council sign and conclude the agreement on behalf of the European Union. It is not yet decided whether the agreement in its entirety would fall under the exclusive competence of the European Union or would also touch upon Member States' competences. In the latter case, ratification by the Member States would also be necessary for the agreement to come into force. The Commission’s proposal is expected on 5 July 2016.

The Court of Justice of the EU clarified the concept of 'plain, intel-ligible ...

European consumers are protected against unfair terms in consumer contracts, including insurance contracts. However, this protection does not extend to terms setting out the essential elements of a contract, such as the extent of the risk covered and the amount of the insurance premium. Nevertheless, if the term under scrutiny is not drafted in 'plain, intelligible language', a court may proceed to evaluate its fairness. The Court of Justice of the EU clarified the concept of 'plain, intel-ligible language' in a recent decision, stating that a term in a contract can be qualified as such only if it allows an average consumer actually to understand the economic consequences of the term.
