Unfair contract terms guidance published

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has produced guidance documents to help traders comply with forthcoming alterations to unfair contract terms legislation. The alterations will take effect from 1st October 2015, when the remaining provisions of the Consumer Rights Act come into force. The new guidance gives traders information about what makes terms and notices unfair, what risks and penalties they can face when using unfair wording and tips about ensuring terms and notices are fair and clear. The documents range in length from a single-page flowchart to assist when  deciding  whether a contract term is fair or not, to a 144-page ‘long’ manual that explains the changes to the legislation in detail.
The guidance documents are available at:
