CLAIMS MANAGEMENT REGULATION: MINISTRY OF JUSTICE
The aims of this consultation are to develop closer and tighter
relationships between the Claims Management Regulations Unit (CMR), the
Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) and the Legal Ombudsman (LO), whilst
concentrating on addressing PPI claims. The Ministry of Justice is also
looking to address the problem of CMC cold calling, as well as assessing
the relationship between CMC’s and consumers, aiming to add a layer of
transparency in the practices of CMC’s with consumers. The desired
outcome is to enable consumers to understand fully understand the
practices of CMC’s. The NFDA is pleased with the proposed actions being
taken to tackle malpractice from CMC’s. The NFDA has placed particular
emphasis on any proposals concerning Payment Protection Insurance (PPI),
as the motor industry has been heavily subjected to the poor practices
of many CMC’s.

CONSULTATION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CONSUMER RIGHTS DIRECTIVE 2011/83/EU: BIS
The consultation is focused on the discussion of the proposed methods and outcomes of the implementation of the Consumer Rights Directive (CRD). The CRD agreed by all European Member States in October 2011. Its aim is to ‘simplify and harmonise rules in a limited number of key areas, to encourage growth and raise consumer confidence in buying across boarders’. The RMI feel the proposed legislation is comprehensive and provides a clear framework for both businesses and consumers to abide and has only raised one concern over clarity.
