– The consumer society has gone way too far. We need to be more concerned with maintaining the things we have already produced, which is why we want to make it easier to buy second-hand, Vestre tells TV 2.

The law on the second-hand trade dates back to 1999, but owners of second-hand shops have been asking the government for a change in the regulations for several years, TV 2 writes.

The current legislation is particularly problematic because the goods must be kept for at least two weeks before they can be sold. In addition, all goods must be logged manually and anyone who wants to run a second-hand shop must have permission from the police.

The Minister of Business thinks the regulations are outdated and thinks it would be best to scrap the law altogether.

Nevertheless, the ministry has now submitted two proposals for consultation: scrap the law completely or narrow it down so that it only applies to antiques and the like.

– Today the law is quite complicated. That makes it complicated for us who want to sell and buy used goods. That’s why we’re now saying it’s time to remove it, says Vestre.
