The European Commission is assessing how the Commission Recommendation of 11 June 2013 on common principles for injunctive and compensatory collective redress mechanisms in the Member States concerning violations of rights granted under Union Law is being implemented in practice.
The Commission undertook to assess practical experience with implementing the Recommendation by 26 July 2017. The assessment should provide an overview of collective redress mechanisms across the EU and evaluate the Recommendation’s impact on access to justice, on the right to obtain compensation and on the need to prevent abusive litigation.
The period of consultation will be from 22.05.2017 to 15.08.2017. The Survey focuses exclusively on practical experience with specific collective redress cases and with mass harm situations where collective redress was not available or not used.
The Survey is available online at: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/Collective_Redress
