12:50 20/03/2017

MOSCOW, March 20 (RAPSI) – The Russian Government has submitted a bill on protection of rights of customers, who pay for goods or services online, to the State Duma, the database for the lower house of parliament reads on Monday.

The bill prepared by the consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor introduces the term of “goods aggregator” and stipulates liability for knowingly providing false information about vendors, goods, and services.

According to the government, the activities of goods aggregators are currently not regulated despite these entities being primary recipients of customers’ funds. These funds are then accumulated by the aggregators in large amounts on their websites. The Government believes that while the aggregators function without clear rules, customers are left without the protection of the consumer rights legislation.
