The majority of the Consumer Rights Act, that replaces some well-known business-to-consumer legislation on the sale of goods, supply of goods and services and unfair terms, is scheduled to come into force on 1 October 2015.

The changes made include a wider definition of consumer’, the setting out of a consumer’s rights when there is a breach of a contract to supply goods, digital content or services, and provisions as to unfair terms.
