- Check whether your eCommerce business falls within the scope of the Directive.
- If you are in scope, check the legal requirements in the EEA countries in which you operate. In most cases, the compliance requirements will be available on the individual country’s Supervising Authority’s website, for example the CNIL for France and the Dutch DPA. These legal obligations may relate to rules on online information, advertising, shopping, and contracting. You may also become subject to "prior authorisation" schemes, such as licensing requirements, in certain EEA countries.
- Make sure you have processes in place to monitor ongoing compliance if requirements in the EEA countries in which you operate change. This could include signing up to newsletters from particular EEA States’ Supervising Authorities or working with a Solicitor to ensure you are advised on regulatory changes.
