The new European Union Consumer Program for the period 2014-2020 will reinforce product safety, consumer information, education, redress and reinforcement. The program targets specifically elderly people and minors who are likely to be unaware of their rights and will benefit most from such programs. An important objective of the reform is to support EU level consumer organisations which work for the transparency and confidence in the EU market. Another beneficiary of the new program will be comparison websites which will receive funding, since they give greater freedom to consumers. MEPs also made a proposal for setting up an online portal for consumer groups in which they can exchange expertise and good practices.
