Article 17 of the Law for the balance of trade relationships in the agricultural and food industry of October 30, 2018 (known as the “EGalim” Law) authorized the French Government to recast by means of an ordinance Title IV of Book IV of the French Commercial Code on transparency, practices that restrict competition and other prohibited practices. This has now been done with the publication of Ordinance No. 2019-359 of April 24, 2019.
The objective pursued by the legislator is to make the rules governing business relationships, practices that restrict competition and prohibited practices easier to understand and more transparent, and to ensure greater legal certainty.
With a view to tightening digital platforms’ transparency and loyalty towards consumers, three Decrees published on September 29, 2017 have clarified the information requirements imposed on the operators of such platforms.
Some of the measures introduced by the Decrees must be implemented by January 1, 2018.
After many twists and turns, the Bill on growth, economic activity and equality of economic opportunity, commonly known as the “Macron Bill”, was eventually adopted on February 19, 2015 by the National Assembly through the use of Article 49§3 of the French Constitution.
Article 58 quarter of this Bill, introduced by the special committee of the National Assembly, initially allowed any company, whatever its size, not to publish its accounts.
Following the general public outcry caused by this contemplated measure (what about applicable European texts?? And, above all, what about the transparency advocated by the Government??), this article was finally amended to restrict its scope of application.
