Italy implemented the Consumer Rights Directive by adopting the Legislative Decree no. 21 of February 21, 2014 effective from June 13, 2014 which amended the Italian Consumer Code.
The new rules apply to any contract concluded between a trader and a consumer, with the exceptions indicated in the Consumer Rights Directive. As allowed under Article 3.4 of the Directive, Italy decided that the new rules do not apply to off-premises contracts for which the payment to be made by the consumer does not exceed €50.
