(May 02, 2008) On April 2, 2008, the Knesset (Israel's Parliament) passed an amendment to the Consumer Protection Law, 5741-1981. The amendment prevents an automatic extension of contractual relations between consumers and providers. It requires full awareness of the contractual time period and the expressed consent on the part of the consumer for its extension. The amendment further requires a provider to itemize bills sent to the consumer. In addition, a provider must send the consumer an itemized receipt reflecting all payments made by the consumer by a bank order or credit card once every six months, unless the payments are fixed and never changed and the consumer did not request such a receipt. Violation of the provisions entitles the consumer to damages. (The Consumer Protection (Amendment No. 22) Law, 5768-2008, Knesset Web site (last visited Apr. 16, 2008).)
