The European Commission has adopted a "consumer enforcement package", consisting of a Communication setting out the key areas of action to strengthen consumer protection at EU level and a report on the first two years of the application of Regulation (EC) No 2006/2004 of 27 October 2004. This Regulation establishes an EU-wide consumer protection cooperation network of public authorities enforcing consumer rules at national level (the CPC Network).

The Communication indicates five priority areas for action in the consumer protection field: (i) strengthening cooperative frameworks such as the CPC Network and market surveillance systems for dangerous consumer products; (ii) strengthening the transparency of market surveillance and enforcement investigations; (iii) developing common understandings on the interpretation of EU consumer law; (iv) strengthening market monitoring, in particular the evidence base to identify markets where enforcement actions may be necessary; and (v) stepping up international cooperation through agreements with enforcement authorities in third countries (e.g., the United States and China).
