The European Commission has published proposed rules for electronic commerce that, among other things, would guarantee the validity of e-contracts and e-signatures and introduce measures to combat spam. The proposal has been introduced within the context of ongoing negotiations among World Trade Organization members about making e-commerce more transparent and reliable.
“Despite a fast increase in digital trade, there are currently no multilateral rules in this area,”
the Commission said in a statement issued on 3 May.
