According to the Law Society, the European Commission is expected to issue a proposal for a Common Sales Law that would cover the whole of the EU.

Whilst the new Law would want to harmonise the internal European market and increase cross border trade, the Law Society thinks that it may actually raise difficulties for businesses and consumers in the UK. In particular, there would be questions over interpretation and application over elements of contract law.

Considering that our present legal system has been built up over centuries, it would take some time - and money - for private parties to litigate to create the new case law required. Further, the Law Society thinks that it would be difficult to apply the system uniformly across the 27 EU Member States.
