Alternative solution of consumers´ disputes
On February 1, 2016, the Act No. 391/2015 Coll. on Alternative solution of Consumer´ Disputes and on Amendments to Certain Laws came into effect. The aim of this law is to create a new opportunity for consumers to resolve their disputes with the seller quickly, efficiently, less formally and, above all, free of charge, or only at minimal costs. It is a matter of achieving a conciliatory solution, or an agreement between the consumer and the seller on the resolution of the dispute, which becomes a binding legal basis after both parties agree with its wording.
The bodies for alternative dispute resolution by law are the Office for the Regulation of Network Industries, the Office for the Regulation of Electronic Communications and Postal Services and the Slovak Trade Inspection. In addition, the Slovak Trade Inspection is in the position of the so-called residual entity, which means that it will also be entitled to settle disputes, for which the competence of other bodies is not determined, apart from disputes arising from contracts for provision of financial services.
