European rules in the area of contract law are traditionally issued for consumer transactions or in areas where one of the parties is in a clearly weaker contractual position, such as for commercial agency. European rules may be found also in areas with regulatory character and significant influence on commercial relationships, such as competition law or financial law. In contrast, commercial contract law has not been subject to any significant Europen activity.
This chapter analyses the implications of the process towards a European contract law for commercial contracts, considering, in particular, the desirability of a general European contract law applicable to both consumer and commercial relationships.
