The Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 are not to be confused with, though they duplicate, the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977. The regulations are an EU initiative, which has been under review in recent times by a Law Commission monograph which noted that, “thus potentially unfair terms in contracts are at present subject to one or both of two quite separate legal regimes.”

Neither of them were enough to get poor naughty Mr Beavis out of his £85 fine (and $15m in court costs) in ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis. But not too many of you will weep crocodile tears for that mendacious fellow.
