Financial Services Analysis: Rita Hunter, Legal Counsel, Julia Cripps, Partner, Melanie Johnson, Senior Knowledge Counsel at Hogan Lovells LLP, summarized the FCA`s recently published consultation paper on sustainability requirements and the UK labelling system. Companies that want to prevent their competitors from gaining an unfair advantage through misleading advertising or copycat products must rely on a combination of different rights. In the past, disclosure has played a key role in preventing unfair commercial practices, but a derogation requirement has its limitations, and the emergence of the Protection of Businesses from Misleading Marketing (BPR 2008) Regulations 2008, SI 2008/1276, has been a useful addition in the fight against unfair commercial practices. BPR 2008 prohibits advertising that misleads merchants. They also determine the extent to which comparative advertising, whether directed at traders or consumers, is permitted. The OPR 2008 came into force at the same time as the Consumer Protection from Unfair Commercial Practices Regulations 2008 (CPUTR 2008), SI 2008/1277 and should be considered in conjunction with the Consumer Protection Regulations 2008 (Consumer Protection and Protection of Consumers from Unfair Commercial Practices Regulations, 2008) and should be considered in conjunction with the protection of consumers against unfair commercial practices (CPUTR 2008), SI 2008/1277 and should be considered in conjunction with the Protection of Consumers from Unfair Commercial Practices Regulations 2008 if the commercial practices are likely to affect consumers. BPR 2008 implemented the EU Misleading and Comparative Advertising Directive (CAD) in the UK, replacing the Misleading Advertising Control Regulations 1988, SI 1988/915 and the Trade Descriptions Act 1968.

Instructions that may be misunderstood by the jury or give the wrong impression are considered “misleading”. 28 Misleading advertisingThe relevant mandatory provisions are contained in the Control of Misleading Advertising Regulations 19881. These Regulations were introduced to comply with Council Directive (EEC) 84/450 on misleading advertising2. The 1988 Regulations require the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to investigate complaints to the OFT that an advertisement is misleading, unless the complaint appears vexatious or frivolous.3 However, the FOT is not empowered to investigate complaints that may be dealt with by the Communications Office4 (`Ofcom`). An advertisement is defined as misleading if it somehow speeds up all aspects of your legal work with tools that help you work faster and smarter. Win cases, close deals and grow your business, while saving time and minimizing risk. This constitutes a “normal” abuse of language, i.e.
a term defined by TDA 1968, § 3 para. 1, as materially incorrect, differs from that which, although not incorrect, is covered by the 1968 ADT, § 3 sec. 2, was explained before the court by the following words. A distinction can be made between a statement that tells a lie about itself and a statement that is true at first glance but misled by its associations in the mind of the consumer. Law360, London: Anti-greenwashing rules proposed by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) leave global asset managers room for regulatory arbitrage as they generally do not apply to foreign funds, giving foreign competitors an edge in attracting investors, according to legal experts.

What are the legal bases for timeshare failure? Background The Timeshare, Holiday Products, Resale and Exchange Contracts Regulations 2010 (the Regulation) SI 2010/2960 apply to the sale and marketing of timeshare contracts – a contract of more than one year in which a consumer acquires the right, in return for payment, to use one or more accommodation facilities for more than one period of employment (including boats and caravans). The regulation only applies to contracts between a “trader” and a “consumer”. A “trader” is defined as a person who acts for purposes falling within the scope of his trade, business, craft or profession, or any person acting on behalf of or on behalf of such a person.
This includes contractual partners or vicarious agents for contracting parties. Traders are required to comply with the regulation and failure to comply with this obligation would constitute a criminal offence (see below) Administrative offences Key pre-contractual information SI 2010/2960, Regs 12–14 contains the most important information that must be provided before a trader enters into a contract with a consumer. These include requirements relating to the format in which essential information is provided, as well as advertising and marketing restrictions and information to be provided to the consumer in good time before the conclusion of the contract. SI 2010/2960, Regulation 12 (8) creates a specific offence for a trader who infringes SI 2010/2960, Reg 12 (5) by not providing “key information” Thesaurus: All synonyms and antonyms for misleading Representations and events of standard plug-in clauses for credit agreements and guarantees Documents: individual borrower or debtor DEFINITIONS Section 1.1 (Definitions) of the previous must be accompanied by the following definition: Facility agreement (bullet loan): Individual borrower – bilateral – with or without guarantee or guarantee.
