It is recalled that Law no. 144/2015 of 8 September, which transposed Directive 2013/11/EU, of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 21 May 2013, on the alternative resolution of consumer disputes, establishes the new legal framework for extrajudicial resolution mechanisms for consumer disputes, creating the Consumer Arbitration Network in Portugal.

This diploma establishes new rules for alternative consumer dispute resolution entities and also obligations for companies. The deadline for adapting to these new rules ends on March 23, 2016.

In order to promote the dissemination of these new rules, the Directorate-General for Consumers has prepared a set of answers to frequently asked questions:
