For some time, distance selling has been an essential part of the operations of many traders. However, there remains considerable ignorance of some of the key rules and regulations that govern ‘distance contracts’ whether formed on the internet or by other means.

This webinar summarises the key content of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 and sets out a series of practical steps to be taken by businesses.

Given that both the courts and the Competition and Markets Authority will soon be able to fine traders for serious breaches of consumer law there is no better time to refresh your knowledge of these issues.
