ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR CONSUMER DISPUTES
Portuguese law no. 144/2015 of 8 September, transposed directive 2013/11/EU, of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 21 May 2013, on alternative dispute resolution for consumer disputes.
The law establishes the legal framework of the mechanisms for alternative dispute resolution for consumer disputes, creating the consumer arbitration network in Portugal.
- WHAT ARE CONSUMER DISPUTES?
These are disputes initiated by a consumer against a supplier of goods or service provider, concerning contractual obligations resulting from sales or service agreements, signed between the supplier of goods or service provider established and consumers residing in Portugal and in the European Union (article 2(1) of law no. 144/2015).
- WHAT IS ADR?
Adr refers to mechanisms available to consumers and companies to try to reach out-of-court settlements for consumer disputes, in a faster and less expensive manner. Adr covers mediation, conciliation, and arbitration. The adr process starts with an attempt at agreement by means of mediation or conciliation. However, if this agreement is not achieved, the parties involved may approach the arbitration court, through a simple and quick process.
- WHAT ARE ADR ENTITIES?
These are independent entities, with specialized staff, who impartially help the consumer and the company reach an amicable solution. These entities are authorized to carry out the mediation, conciliation and arbitration of consumer disputes. The aforementioned entities have to be registered in the list provided for in article 17 of law no. 144/2015.
- WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MANAGING THE LIST OF ADR ENTITIES?
The consumer directorate-general is the competent national authority for organizing the registration and publication of the list of adr entities (see Annex I).
- HOW MANY ADR ENTITIES ARE THERE IN PORTUGAL?
In Portugal, there are ten consumer conflict arbitration centers. Of these, seven have general authority at the regional level, and are in Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Guimaraes, Braga/Viana do Castelo, Algarve and Madeira. There is also the national center (supplementary), the CNIACC - national center for information and arbitration of consumer conflicts. There are two more centers with specific authority, specializing in the automotive industry and in the insurance industry.
- HOW CAN A COMPANY KNOW WHICH ADR ENTITY SHOULD BE INDICATED TO ITS CONSUMERS?
The place of conclusion of the sales or service agreement, which in general is the same as the place of the establishment, determines the competent arbitration center.
- a company that only has one or more commercial establishments in a given municipality should only indicate the adr entity that has the authority to resolve disputes in that municipality.
- a company that exercises its activity throughout national territory must indicate all the competent entities.
- a vehicle repair workshop, an insurance company or a travel agency must indicate the specialized entities for these industries.
- WHO IS OBLIGED TO INFORM CONSUMERS ABOUT ADR ENTITIES?
All suppliers of goods and service providers - including those who only sell products or provide services over the internet - are obliged to inform consumers on available adr entities, either those to which they have voluntarily submitted or those to which they are bound by law. Only providers of services of general interest without economic consideration, such as social services provided by the state or on its behalf, healthcare services and public services for supplementary or higher education, are excluded.
The obligations resulting from law no. 144/2015 apply, with the necessary adaptations, to all economic sectors not excluded from the aforementioned law, including those in which there is already specific legislation that foresees a similar obligation.
- IS THERE SOME OBLIGATION TO SUBMIT TO AN ADR ENTITY?
This law does not impose submission to any adr entity, only establishing a duty to provide information on existing entities. But there is the case of necessary arbitration for essential public services, such as for example, electricity, gas, water and waste, electronic communications and postal services.
- HOW MUST COMPANIES PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION?
This information must be provided clearly, comprehensibly and in a manner appropriate to the type of good or service that is sold or provided (article 18(2) of law no. 144/2015). thus:
- on the websiteof the suppliers of goods or service providers, if it exists.
- in the sales or service agreements between the supplier of goods or service provider and the consumer, when these are drawn up in writing or take the form of subscription agreements.
- if it is not in written form, the information must be provided in another long-lasting format, namely on a sign attachedto the wall or affixed on the sales counter or on the invoiceprovided to the consumer.
- DOES THE LAW ESTABLISH SOME STANDARDISED TEMPLATE OF THE INFORMATION TO BE PROVIDED TO CONSUMERS?
No. However, a proposed formulation of a sign is attached hereto (Annex II).
- WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING COMPLIANCE WITH THE OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO CONSUMERS?
The authority for food and economic safety and the sectoral regulators in their corresponding fields are responsible for monitoring compliance with these duties, the investigation proceedings involving offences and deciding on these proceedings, including the application of fines and additional penalties, if necessary.
- WHAT IS THE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE DUTY TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO CONSUMERS?
Failure to comply with the duty to provide information by suppliers of goods or service providers, is an offence, punishable by:
- a fine of between € 500 and € 5,000, when committed by a natural person.
- a fine of between € 5,000 and € 25,000when committed by a legal person.
- WHEN DOES THIS NEW SYSTEM APPLY?
Law no. 144/2015 of 8 September entered into force on 23 September 2015, and suppliers of goods or service providers had 6 months from that date onwards to adapt to this new system. Thus, from 23 March 2016, companies must have this information ready for their consumers.
Attention: the provision of information to consumers on adr entities available does not exempt suppliers of goods and service providers from providing consumers a complaint book, compulsory pursuant to decree-law no. 156/2005, of 15 September.
