Chapter Summary

Russias transition to a market economy has placed on emphasis on two groups that received scanty attention under the previous RSFSR Civil Code of 1964, namely entrepreneurs and consumers. This chapter highlights the provisions in the Russian Civil Code that specifically focus on entrepreneurs and consumers, within the context of the Code as a whole. On the one hand, for entrepreneurs, the Codes main concern is to emphasize their right to conduct entrepreneurial activity; on the other, for consumers, it is to provide protection in situations where, to put it briefly, there might be inequality of bargaining power. The Civil Code includes three provisions that provide important general protection for the potentially weaker party to a contract. Aside from contractual obligations, one should note that there is important obligation, which arises as a result of causing harm, which is of particular interest with respect to concern with entrepreneurs and consumers.
