The rapid development of online commerce within the EU is forcing national and international institutions to respond promptly with adequate regulatory measures. On an EU level, among such measures is the adoption of Regulation (EU) 2017/2394. In Bulgaria, the Regulation was recently implemented in the Consumer Protection Act (State Gazette, 14 February 2020).
According to the new rules, the Bulgarian Consumer Protection Commission was given wide powers to control international online shops based in Bulgaria, including inter alia the power to request the removal of website content and even to deregister a domain in the event of violation of consumer law. The new powers of the Commission imposed by EU law seems to favour not only consumers. The other big "winners" are compliant online merchants based in the EU. Read Galina Petkova's article in Capital Daily for more details as to how Regulation (EU) 2017/2394 was implemented in Bulgaria.
