Amazon France fined in millions euros for not complying with ruling

Paris, Dec 7 (Prensa Latina) The French Office for the Repression of Fraud today confirmed the sanction of 3.3 million euros to the e-commerce giant Amazon, for the delay in complying with a court order issued a year ago.

In the statement, the state agency recalled that last December Amazon’s subsidiary in France was ordered ‘to modify as soon as possible, and at the latest by March 22, 2022, certain clauses of its contractual conditions applicable to third-party sellers present on its platform’.

The judgment was based in particular on a significant imbalance of these contractual conditions in favor of Amazon, which is why a coercive fine of 90 thousand euros for each day of delay was imposed ‘applicable in the event of non-compliance by the company Amazon as of March 22, 2022’, the body specified.

But in view of its late compliance, dated April 28, 2022, the fine amounted to ‘3.33 million euros’, which is now claimed by the sanctioning body appealing ‘for the first time, to the new power of warning provided for in the Commercial Code’, which allows to set amounts of dissuasive measures sanctions, up to 1% of the global turnover.
