First Annual Oxford Consumer ADR Conference
Consumer ADR (CDR) has taken a central place on the European landscape, and is the subject of harmonising EU legislation in 2012. But how will/should things develop now?
- How should Member States implement the ADR Directive and conform to the ODR Regulation?
- Will the legislation be implemented on a “tick box” approach nationally, or on a wider basis?
- Every Member State faces challenges in developing its CDR system: How should national systems be reformed?
- What scope exists for trans-border provision of CDR/ODR services?
- CDR holds out considerable advantages not only in effective and efficient dispute resolution, in both individual and mass/collective claims, but also in recycling the aggregated data for the benefit of traders and markets: How should this best be achieved, and what are the challenges?
- What are the implications for realising economies on courts and regulatory enforcement?
- What is the vision for CDR in Europe, and how should it be achieved?
This conference aims to bring together all the leading viewpoints on how CDR/ODR should be taken forward, the EU legislation implemented, and the benefits achieved and maximised. It is intended to follow a discussion group format, rather than a sequence of speeches.
