EJF issues the second Monitoring Report on Collective Redress Regulation in Europe

EJF has launched its second “Monitoring Report on Collective Redress Regulation”, which aims to provide an updated analysis of the current state of play of collective redress mechanisms throughout 14 European countries and how they are proceeding with the transposition of the Directive into national law, which has to be done before 1st of January 2023. The new report covers the different transposition timelines of the Directive and observes the potential influencing factors that are causing the lack of priority in government’s agendas to implement the Directive. Additionally, a specific analysis on the role of digitalisation, scope of redress areas and private funding is included in the study, which helps understanding the bigger picture of collective redress in Europe. Furthermore, the report shows the main developments concerning collective redress legislation and case-law in the each one of the covered jurisdictions.
