European Community Consumer protection. Articles11 and 14 of Council Directive (EEC) 87-102 on the approximation of laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the member states concerning consumer credit, as amended by Parliament and Council Directive (EC) 98-7, had to be interpreted as meaning that the right to pursue remedies, provided for in art11(2) of the Directive, which the consumer enjoyed against the grantor of credit, might not be made subject to the condition that the prior offer of credit had to indicate the goods or services being financed. The Directive, as amended, also had to be interpreted as allowing national courts to apply of their own motion the provisions transposing art11(2) into national law.
