In Europe, harmonised rules must be established for consumer rights, privacy, etc. with a minimum of administrative burdens. These goals lead to five key areas for BeCommerce:

Belgian Lobby and Regional Legislation

An even balance between consumer rights and a good business environment for digital commerce is paramount.

Priorities:

  • Streven naar een wettelijke omkadering voor nachtarbeid in de e-commerce sector.   

  • Het opiniestuk van BeCommerce over de advertentierichtlijn over Social Influencers en Contentmakers (ENG).                                                   

  • Sofie Geeroms' opinion piece on sustainability in e-commerce and a potential price regulation by the government can be consulted in French and Dutch (NL/FR). The occasion for that opinion piece was this newspaper article by Minister of Posts and Communications, Petra De Sutter.

  • Workable Law and agile work (NL/FR) 

  • The competitive position in relation to neighbouring countries: 

    • A reduction of the VAT rate

    • A digital tax on internet giants at international or European level

  • The approach to the right of withdrawal. Read the opinion of BeCommerce hier.
