This paper outlines the main trends of the evolution of EU consumer legislation. It ends with some recent developments, in particular ADR and projects of standardisation organisations such as the CEN in the area of services. It draws the seemingly paradoxical conclusion that EU consumer law may be followed by something that deals neither with consumers nor can no longer be considered as (hard) law.
