SI No 513 of 2018 European Union (Unjustified Geo-Blocking of Consumers) Regulations 2018

SI No 513 of 2018 gives effect, for consumers, to Regulation (EU) 2018/302 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 February 2018 on addressing unjustified geo-blocking and other forms of discrimination based on customers’ nationality, place of residence or place of establishment within the internal market and amending Regulations (EC) No 2006/2004 and (EU) 2017/2394 and Directive 2009/22/EC.

Geo-blocking is the practice of using technology to restrict access to online cross-border sales based upon the user’s geographical location. The Geo-blocking Regulation will ensure that all consumers in the EU will now have the same rights to access a trader’s goods and services on the same terms, irrespective of their location. The Geo-blocking Regulation applies to transactions which have a cross-border element.
