On 22 April 2020, the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (the "MCCAA") published a consultation regarding a Bill to amend the Consumer Affairs Act (Chapter 378 of the laws of Malta) and other Laws, and to make ancillary and consequential provisions thereto.

The proposed Bill aims to implement Regulation (EU) 2017/2394 on cooperation between national authorities responsible for the enforcement of consumer protection laws and repealing Regulation (EC) No 2006/2004, which lists the minimum investigation and enforcement powers of the competent authorities of the Member States.

The consultation is open for feedback until 12 May 2020, and anyone who wishes to submit feedback may do so by following this link
