Injunctions, injunctive actions

Action in court or before a public enforcement body which aims at obtaining an injunction (ordering specific action or cessation of action by a specified person/persons/organization). Injunctions/injunctive actions have been crucial for enforcement of consumer law, also on the EU (cross-border) level.

The EU has enacted the Injunctions Directive which allows bodies representing consumer interests authorised by a Member State to take injunctive actions before courts or authorities of another Member State.
