Can market access be taken seriously if actual effect of national measures is not taken into account? To address this question, it is useful to start by an observation of the Court's practice in relation to evidence of effects of national measures. The Court has developed an impressive array of evidence-avoiding techniques, which are surveyed in section 1. As a result, its approach to measures having equivalent effect stays very abstract. In this context, any potential conceptual novelty brought about by the adoption of the market access criterion is neutralized. For market access to be taken seriously, a conceptual framework for appraising market access restrictions is needed. Section 2 provides a preliminary enquiry into possible building blocs that could be borrowed from economics or behavioural sciences to build such a framework. Unlike what may be observed in the field of competition law, economics does not seem to be of much help to develop an effects-based approach in relation to market access. Behavioural sciences could be more promising as they can offer a realistic accounts of how consumer behave and, according to the Court's case law, the appraisal of market access may depend precisely on consumer behaviour. Yet, the Court's preference for an abstract approach leaves only a narrow space for importing insights from behavioural sciences into free movement law. It would take presumptions based on behavioural sciences (rather than case-specific evidence) to combine attention to facts and scientifically sound appraisal into a 'reasonably abstract' approach acceptable to the Court.

En droit européen, le projet législatif le plus avancé à ce jour en matière d’action collective concerne la réparation des dommages causés par des infractions au droit de la concurrence. Alors que ce projet va une nouvelle fois être remis sur le métier, son champ d’application pourrait être élargi et déboucher sur un instrument européen concernant plus largement les droits des consommateurs. La présente contribution vise à présenter l’état des questions dont le législateur européen sera prochainement saisi et formule quelques suggestions tenant compte du nouveau contexte créé par l’entrée en vigueur du traité de Lisbonne et la perspective d’un cadre commun de référence.

In this paper, I review the impact of the Rome I Regulation (Regulation 593/2008) on contracts concluded by consumers in the financial sphere. The Rome I Regulation has introduced some specific provisions dealing with such contracts - both in the general rule dealing with the law applicable when parties have not chosen the law governing their contract (Art. 4) and in the rule dealing with consumer contracts (art. 6). I attempt to determine what is the scope of these various rules, which contracts are governed by these rules and also and most crucially whether these rules provide the consumer a sufficient level of protection when considered together with other relevant rules (such as rules on cross-border jurisdiction of courts).
