Regional Round Table – Development of System of Cons. Protection in BiH
Zagreb, March 10th 2010
Presenter: Sabljica Samir, Lawyer
The Law was adopted by the two parliamentary assemblies of Bosnia and Herzegovina in January 2006.Law on Consumer Protection was published in the Official Gazette of Bosnia and Herzegovina no. 25/2006.
It should be stressed that the new Law on Consumer
Protection is fully harmonised with primary legislation of the
European Union: theTreaty onEuropean Union, final version
2002, Chapter 14, Articles153. and 95.
10. Directive 87/102/EEC, 90/88/EEC, 98/7/EC of 22. December 1986 for the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the Member State concerning consumer credit
Department for MS, Cons. Protection and Competition was established
on the first May 2007 within MoFTER.
Decisions of the Consumer Ombudsman may be appealed against
only to the extent that this Act or any other related legislation
expressly allows such appeal.
The Union of Consumer’s Association of Bosnia and
Herzegovinahas already appointed two representatives to the
state Council for Consumer Protection.Along with the Union,
the consumers’ movement is also represented within this Council
by one representative of individual associations from each entity.
This will allow a total of 4consumers’ representatives to
cooperate with 11 officials to the effective implementation of the
new law on consumer protection.There is no doubt that such
strategy of multiplying the connections between the consumers’
movement and the authorities at all levels will soon prove
productive.Through the memebership in Consumer Protection
Council of BiH, theConsumer associationswill participate in
making ofThe NACPP of BiH.
