Synopsis The object of this dissertation consists in the right of redress that assists the final seller against their predecessors in the chain of contracts, under the sale of consumer goods. We propose ourselves to expose and question the characterizing aspects of the right of redress’ regime introduced by the Decree-Law 67/2003 of 8 April, transposing the Directive 1999/44/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of 25 May 1999. The application of this regime is vast, so it is not only present in the daily life of all citizens, it is also a recurring theme in legal practice. Thus, some questions urge a clear and complete answer: Is this a true right of redress? The construction of the institute benefit their intervenients? What is the purpose of it? We will strive to clarify these aspects, using our legislation, doctrine and, wherever possible, the case law.
