On 9 December 2015, the European Commission presented two proposals for directives on European contract law that are part of the strategy for a digital single market. The proposals, which are based on ‘targeted full harmonisation’, complement the directive on consumer rights (2011/83/EU).

The first proposal concerns online and distance sales of goods: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/contract/files/digital_contracts/dsm_online_en.pdf

The second proposal contains rules governing contracts for the supply of digital content: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/contract/files/digital_contracts/dsm_digital_content_en.pdf
