The Presumption of Non-Conformity in European Consumer Sales Law

By Karolina Sikorska

This book analyzes the allocation of the burden of proof in European consumer sale cases, in particular the application of the presumption of non-conformity designed to simplify the consumer's duty to supply evidence. It provides detailed information on the notion of non-conformity as found in the Consumer Sales Directive and implemented in Poland, Germany, England/Wales, and the Netherlands, and it presents a comprehensive analysis of the presumption of non-conformity. The book clarifies whether the presumption of non-conformity constitutes an appropriate tool for simplifying the burden of proof lying with the consumer, and whether it provides for a high level of consumer protection necessary for the better functioning of the European Internal Market. [Subject: European Law, Consumer Law, Commercial Law, Trade Law]
