On 15-17 January, experts from Poland and the United Kingdom will visit Georgia to assist the country’s legislators in the development of a comprehensive legal framework on consumer protection and consumer rights. The mission is being organised by the European Commission’s Technical Assistance and Information Exchange Instrument (TAIEX) in cooperation with the Parliament of Georgia.

The aim of the expert mission is to support the Committee on European Integration of the Parliament of Georgia in the drafting of the new draft Law on Consumer Rights Protection, which transposes to the national legal system the main provisions of EU directives and regulations in the field. The ultimate goal is to align Georgian legislation with the EU acquis and put in place a modern legal framework for consumer rights protection.

The experts will also address legal issues arising from the implementation of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement and the transposition of other relevant EU legislation.

TAIEX is a demand-driven tool that supports partner countries with the adaptation of national laws, regulations and quality standards to match those of EU Member States in the framework of Cooperation or Association Agreements signed with the EU. In the Eastern Neighbourhood, TAIEX works with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
