Abstract

There is very little the reader needs to know as one prepares to read this dissertation, as the author endeavours to explain the motor industry to the reader and what exactly Block Exemption Regulation 1400/2002 is. The new Regulation is a European directive therefore the author's work has a very European ambience to the context, the primary purpose of the author's efforts are to study the effects of this regulation for Irish consumers.

The Irish Motor Industry has seen an enormous increase in volume since its inception. Over the years the number of vehicles on Irish roads has increased beyond all expectations. But the Irish market has struggled in recent years to live up to its pinnacle of 2000, which saw the registration of over 230,000 new motor vehicles, the highest recorded figure in the history of the Irish state. The introduction of the Block Exemption is certainly going to have an affect on the Irish market and ultimately Irish consumers.

The author's research shall study the Block Exemptions effects in relation to the stated objectives of the Commission at the time of its introduction. Block Exemption Regulation 1400/2002 is an EU law introduced in October 2002 to all member states of the EU and EFTA states associated with the European Community. The author shall study the effects of the introduction of this Regulation on Irish consumers impartially and enterprise to substantiate his findings with accurate research.
