Six Romanian websites selling IT&C products are investigated by the European Commission for misinforming clients

Miercuri, 9 septembrie 2009, 20:26 English | Regional Europe

Six of the 11 Romanian websites selling IT&C products were detected to be inaccurate in informing customers regarding the real prices of the products. They have also been found to contain false advertisements, the European Commission announced on Wednesday. The announcement came after the completion of an investigation involving 369 websites from 26 EU member states, plus Norway and Iceland. 55% of these have been found guilty of an error and the investigation need to continue for them.

The investigation was led by national authorities under the European Commission's coordination. It started in May and it looked into the most popular websites selling electronic products within the EU. It involved the most important 200 niche websites and 100 others, on the basis of legal complaints made regarding breaking of the consumer’s rights.

13% of the websites still to be investigated require trans-border cooperation. This is not Romania's case. The European executive did not make public the number of the websites in trouble. The companies owning the websites will be required to fix the problems or otherwise be sent to court, which could lead to fines or even shutting them down. The final results will be made public later in 2010.
