Question referred

Is Article 3(1), read in conjunction with Articles 8 and 8a, of Council Directive 93/13/EEC 1 to be interpreted as not precluding national provisions which characterise the two conditions of ‘good faith’ and ‘a significant imbalance’ as alternatives (as separate, autonomous and independent conditions), such that, for the purposes of deciding whether a contractual term is unfair, it is sufficient if facts exist which establish that just one of those two conditions is fulfilled?


1 Council Directive 93/13/EEC of 5 April 1993 on unfair terms in consumer contracts (OJ 1993 L 95, p. 29).
