The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has written to 62 of the top online retailers after a websweep carried out earlier this year indicated that many of them might not be compliant with consumer protection law.
The websweep suggests that there is still some way for retailers to go to ensure compliance with the law and the OFT has highlighted its particular concerns around the provision of contact details, application of hidden charges and consumers' rights to a refund.
Websweeps are used by the OFT to investigate online retailers’ compliance with consumer protection law. In this most recent websweep, the top 100 online retail websites together with top clothing etailers were assessed for compliance with The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (DSRs) and The Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002 (ECRs).
The DSRs apply to all business-to-customer sales of goods and/or services where there is no face-to-face contact. The ECRs apply to the provision of certain goods and/or services by means of the Internet, email, interactive TV or phone texting.
In May 2011, the OFT launched a ‘Distance Selling Hub’ which offers information and guidance to businesses on both the DSRs and ECRs (including, for instance, how and when the regulations apply and what practices should be put in place to ensure compliance). The purpose of the websweep, which was conducted in February 2012, was to measure compliance with the DSRs and ECRs after the launch of the Hub.
The OFT’s findings show improved compliance in many areas, but there are still some areas of neglect:
On the back of these findings, the OFT has written to 62 of the retailers assessed to highlight its concerns.
The websweep serves as both a useful reminder to businesses’ of their key obligations and the OFT’s continuing intention to police compliance with consumer protection laws.
