Consumer Rights Act 2015
The Consumer Rights Act, which came into force on 1st October 2015, heralds what has been described as the 'biggest overhaul of consumer rights in a generation’.
The Act is a major part of the government’s reform of UK consumer law streamlining complicated law from eight pieces of legislation into one place.
It sets out clear and updated consumer rights for goods, services and, for the first time, digital content.
The changes aim to bring greater clarity to the law and help both businesses and consumers by making it clear what their rights and responsibilities are in any particular circumstance.
