On 23 March 2010, the Dutch Ministry of Finance published a Bill which will implement into Dutch law the Consumer Credit Directive (the CDD). An explanatory memorandum to this Bill has also been published.

Pursuant to the implementation of the CDD into Dutch law the Dutch Civil Code (Burgerlijk Wetboek) will be supplemented with a new Title 7.2A on consumer credit agreements in Book 7. In this new Title, the civil law rules of the CCD will be laid down. For example the new Title will lay out the rules regarding the information that needs to be included in a consumer credit agreement.

Implementing the CDD will also require changes to the Act on the Financial Supervision (Wet op het financieel toezicht, AFS) as this already contains rules on pre-contractual information and advertising.

Further information (in Dutch) on the implementation can be found here.
