The New Directive on Unfair Trading Practices in Food and EU Competition Law: Complementary or Divergent Normative Frameworks?

Victoria Daskalova asks The New Directive on Unfair Trading Practices in Food and EU Competition Law: Complementary or Divergent Normative Frameworks?

ABSTRACT: Promoting fairness in business-to-business relationships has been discussed in the EU for years, dating back to at least the negotiation of the 2005 Unfair Commercial Practices Directive. The EU does not have competences to harmonise contract law as such (although a number of attempts at an informal process have been stimulated over the years); however, the EU can regulate contractual and other practices via its competences in competition law,3 its competences in the field of the internal market,4 or by relying on sector-specific competences, as in agriculture.
