If we choose a perspective of consumer protection, and consider the impact of EC regulations or EC directives on the national systems (e.g. the Italian legal system), the idea to introduce general rules on fair trading into the common market should be highly recommended. The aim of this paper is indeed to give evidence of the fact that these rules are already existing in some national legal systems and cope very well with the rules provided by the Charter of Fundamental Rights. When a European Civil Code (a model code, or a set of general principles) will be enacted, those rules could cope with the other rules there provided and concerning the economic relationships between professionals and between professionals and consumers.
