Abstract

This chapter concerns Control of Price Related Terms in Standard Form Contracts under Danish law. It first highlights some essential features of the freedom of contract under Danish law as a historical and current cornerstone of contract law. It then addresses the legislative control of price terms, which is encompassed by a general reasonableness standard that applies universally to all contract terms. Then, the control of contract terms at the judiciary and other authorities are presented. Finally, it examines some examples of regimes that are subject to price caps, before addressing the legislative and private efforts to promote transparency.
