Summary/Abstract: The principle of good faith – as it has been taken from the literal wording of the directive in the English version is not suitable for the Czech legal environment. Although the Czech translation of the directive uses the term „contrary to the requirement of proportionality“, the Czech legislation in art. 56 uses a vague concept of “contrary to the requirement of good faith”. The article focuses on the concept good faith in connection with the consumer contracts and proposes institutes which are more suitable for this field of law.
