This half-day online conference will begin with a discussion of national experiences in dealing with mass claims. It will then outline the state of implementation of the Directive on Representative Actions (EU) 2020/1828 which should have been transposed into national law by 25 December 2022.
This deadline was met by only a few EU Member States. By 25 June 2023, when national transitional provisions should have entered into force in EU Member States, the transposition process was uneven across EU Member States and is still ongoing.
The conference will examine some of the key issues, in particular the legal standing of qualified entities and litigation funding, including the transparency of funding sources. Finally, it will present the new EC-REACT online platform.
- National experiences;
- Implementing the Representative Actions Directive;
- Preparing for upcoming representative actions;
- Litigation funding and transparency of funding sources;
- The Representative Actions Collaboration Tool (EC REACT).
