Ecommerce in Europe: Regulatory changes for markets and data management in 2022

By Go Global - Ecommerce in Europe opened 2022 as a rather eventful year, and that's why today we want to review, alongside our partners Go Global, the key aspects behind these changes and get you a brief summary and a downloadable report on the matter to keep you always on track.

Brexit, inflation, and new regulations

Inflation has made the financial markets very volatile, and new regulations have had an additional impact on the EU. A series of directives and regulatory measures have prompted companies selling online to rethink how they conduct their daily business and how they sell their products or services.

A further factor for change is Brexit, which is having an impact on sales from EU countries to UK customers.

Digital Markets Act, Digital Services Act, Omnibus directives, new regulations for the management and storage of user data and product packaging (which differ from country to country): many changes will affect e-shops in 2022.

So how should those who want to continue cross-border e-commerce in Europe behave without being at risk of violating the rules and incurring penalties? We shed some light on this with Veronica Comito, legal advisor to Go Global Ecommerce.
