The Commission will host a workshop on 7 May on the application of Directive 2005/29/EC on unfair commercial practices.


The meeting will be dedicated to discussing the application of the Directive in the area of environmental claims and will touch upon various issues, i.a., the clarity, accuracy and scientific substantiation of green claims, while also reflecting on the role of self-regulatory organisations and related work carried out by other Commission services, like the Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue on environmental claims.


Participants will include national enforcement authorities of Member States and EEA countries and speakers from self-regulatory bodies, consumer associations and business federations.
