Background

The Danish Purchase Act (in Danish: “Købeloven”) has been revised after two EU directives were passed in 2019. The changes were incorporated into a bill, which was passed by the Danish Parliament on 3 June 2021. The following will be a brief overview of the most important changes, as the changes will enter into force on 1 January 2022.

The directives mainly regard the sale of goods and digital services. Including, rules regarding “lack of conformity” when purchasing goods in the EU and the possibility to claim for lack of conformity. The modifications relate to consumer sales.

The other directive mainly concerns itself with contracts for the supply of digital content and digital services, which will be a new addition to the Danish Purchase Act.
