The law on consumer affairs in Greece
This study was carried out by lawyers and activists in the consumer movement during 1986, and was supplemented during 1987 by various pertinent new provisions. The prevailing situation in Greece with regard to the legal framework for consumer protection is marked by: 1) a plethora of laws, regulations etc. a significant number of which overlap, exaggerate and are out of date regarding conditions as they have evolved since the `sixties'; 2) the absence of a modern and uniform manner of dealing with the serious problem of protecting the citizens in their capacity as consumers; 3) the obvious lack of a safety valve to protect consumers from the non-enforcement of laws and regulations, but also to protect producers, merchants, etc. from possible discriminatory excesses on the part of the state.
