Abstract: The presented paper deals with the definition of the concept of consumer within the legislation of the Slovak Republic. In order to understand the meaning of that concept, it is necessary to follow its definition applied in the legal acts of the European Union and in the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union which in the light of the harmonizing commitments limit the scope of the national legislator by national definition of the term of consumer. As regards the definition of the term of consumer, in the current legal order of the Slovak Republic it is identical with the definition of the term of consumer as defined in the European Union law. However, the anticipating legislative changes may affect this conformity.

Key Words: Consumer Law; European Union Law; Consumer; Consumer Protection; Natural Person; Entrepreneur; Business Activities; the European Union; the Czech Republic; the Slovak Republic.
