Abstract

Aimed at the enhancement of lobbying transparency, this paper is a case-study about the impact of the direct selling industry’s advocacy in relation to the Consumer Rights Directive. The study describes the industry lobby’s principal objectives concerning the revision of the European consumer acquis in detail and explores the efficiency thereof through the investigation into the extent to which the industry’s strategic interests have been translated into binding norms.
