Consumer protection is even more stringent in Hungary than in many other parts of the EU. Heavy fines are imposed on companies that are found responsible for breaches of regulations. Businesses, especially in retail and financial services, are increasingly aware of consumer protection issues, and authorities are pushed to be effective.
Our consumer protection advice is directed to those companies that want to spend less on fines and avoid disputes with the authorities.
