Russia: legal amendments for consumer rights

Another item guarantees consumer rights in on-line transactions. The bill the ministry has drafted also offers more drastic standards of information concerning genetically modified foodstuffs. It proposes deadlines to satisfy consumer demands in case of return of goods, and to offer substitutes for temporary use before a substandard item is finally replaced by a quality one.
