European Case Law

Court of Justice, Third Chamber

29 June 2023, Case C543/21,

(Verband Sozialer Wettbewerb eV v famila-Handelsmarkt Kiel GmbH & Co. KG)

Reference for a preliminary ruling – Consumer protection – Indication of the prices of products – Directive 98/6/EC – Article 2(a) – Concept of ‘selling price’ – Products sold in returnable containers – National legislation requiring the amount of the deposit to be indicated separately from the selling price

Article 2(a) of Directive 98/6/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 February 1998 on consumer protection in the indication of the prices of products offered to consumers

must be interpreted as meaning that the concept of ‘selling price’ laid down in that provision does not include the amount of the deposit payable by the consumer when purchasing goods in returnable containers.
