The EU (European Union) is on a constant regulatory cycle. As direct selling companies transitioned to being omnichannel, we now follow, inform and represent our members in more policy areas than ever before.
Seldia (The European Direct Selling Association) is currently active on proposals regarding employment status, consumer rights online and alternative dispute resolution (rules framing the robustness of our codes of ethics and consumer complaints).
Current sustainability proposals are also directly impacting all EU businesses supply chain, and new rules for VAT (value-added tax) in the digital age have just been published.
