The Act on the Resolution of Mass Claims in Collective Action (Wet Afwikkeling Massaschade in Collectieve Actie), published in the Official Gazette on 1 April 2019 and expected to enter into force on 1 July 2019, enables collective actions for monetary damages on an 'opt-out' basis, by representative bodies that fulfil certain requirements. These include, for instance, requirements regarding the governance and funding and the requirement that the representative body must be not-for-profit.

The Act on the Resolution of Mass Claims in Collective Action will apply to collective actions for damages initiated on or after the date of its entry into force that relate to 'events' that occurred on or after 15 November 2016.
