The outgoing cabinet wants a ban on posting fake reviews or having them posted on the internet, according to a bill submitted on Wednesday evening.

The bill is based on European rules.

If approved, the ban should come into effect in the spring of 2022.

The new rules mean that companies are no longer allowed to post or have fake reviews posted.

In addition, it is no longer allowed to remove negative reviews and leave positive reviews.

In addition, companies must check the authenticity of reviews.

According to the cabinet, the rules are necessary to better protect consumers when making online purchases.

False reviews have been a problem on the internet for years.

Webshops that violate the rules risk a fine of at least 4 percent of the company's total turnover,
