L’Indicazione D’Origine Degli Ingredienti: Una Rivoluzione Francese Neo-Protezionista?, Luis González Vaqué Dec 2017

L’Indicazione D’Origine Degli Ingredienti: Una Rivoluzione Francese Neo-Protezionista?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Non ci stancheremo di ripeterlo: imporre l’obbligo della suddetta indicazione d’origine appare superfluo e infondato dato che nulla impedisce ai produttori di includere tale riferimento su base volontaria (e, naturalmente, veritiera) per soddisfare quei consumatori presumibilmente tanto preoccupati di conoscere la provenienza (nazionale o estera) degli alimenti acquistati. Infine, permetteteci di fare un avvertimento: la menzione dell’origine, quando è imposta, a torto o a ragione, in generale contribuisce irrimediabilmente alla frammentazione e alla disintegrazione del Mercato interno… Facciamola finita con tutte queste leggi obbligatorie e lasciamo che sia il consumatore a decidere!


Opening The Gates Of Cow Palace: Regulating Runoff Manure As A Hazardous Waste Under Rcra, Reed J. Mccalib Dec 2017

Opening The Gates Of Cow Palace: Regulating Runoff Manure As A Hazardous Waste Under Rcra, Reed J. Mccalib

Michigan Law Review

In 2015, a federal court held for the first time that the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) may regulate runoff manure as a “solid waste” under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”). The holding of Community Ass’n for Restoration of the Environment, Inc. v. Cow Palace, LLC opened the gates to regulation of farms under the nation’s primary toxic waste statute. This Comment argues that, once classified as a “solid waste,” runoff manure fits RCRA’s definition of “hazardous waste” as well. This reclassification would expand EPA’s authority to monitor and respond to the nation’s tragically ...


Self-Regulation Of The Labelling Of The List Of Ingredients Of Alcoholic Beverages: A Long-Term Solution?, Luis González Vaqué Nov 2017

Self-Regulation Of The Labelling Of The List Of Ingredients Of Alcoholic Beverages: A Long-Term Solution?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

The proposal to make it compulsory to include a list of ingredients in the labelling of wine and other alcoholic beverages has been debated and rejected many times. It was discussed at length during the legal process leading to the adoption of Directive 79/112/EEC on the labelling, presentation and advertising of foodstuffs, when the ultimately successful arguments presented by opponents of the measure ranged from the view that wine is a living organism whose composition is constantly mutating, to the opinion that such information is irrelevant to consumers. Alcoholic beverages thus remained exempt, despite article 6.3 of ...


Atay V. County Of Maui, Stephanie A. George Nov 2017

Atay V. County Of Maui, Stephanie A. George

Public Land and Resources Law Review

As genetically engineered plants become more common, questions frequently arise regarding how the plants are regulated and who can regulate them. The Ninth Circuit attempted to answer these questions through preemption doctrine. The court left the door open for states and localities to regulate genetically engineered crops that have been deregulated by the federal government. This decision will implicate the future cultivation of genetically engineered crops, and the food industry as a whole.


Impacts Of The Food Safety Modernization Act On On-Farm Food Safety Practices For Small And Sustainable Produce Growers, Aaron Adalja, Erik Lichtenberg Nov 2017

Impacts Of The Food Safety Modernization Act On On-Farm Food Safety Practices For Small And Sustainable Produce Growers, Aaron Adalja, Erik Lichtenberg

Aaron Adalja

We use data from a national survey of fruit and vegetable growers to examine the current prevalence and cost burden of food safety practices required in the proposed Produce Rule implementing the Food Safety Modernization Act. In particular, we analyze the influence of farm size and farming practices on the probability of adopting food safety measures that would be required by the Produce Rule; and we analyze how the costs of using those food safety practices vary by farm size and farm practices. Majorities of our respondents currently employ most of the food safety practices that would be required under ...


Adoption And Coexistence Of Ge, Conventional Non-Ge, And Organic Crops, Aaron Adalja, Catherine Greene, James Hanson, Robert Ebel, Michael Barron Nov 2017

Adoption And Coexistence Of Ge, Conventional Non-Ge, And Organic Crops, Aaron Adalja, Catherine Greene, James Hanson, Robert Ebel, Michael Barron

Aaron Adalja

The adoption of genetically engineered (GE) crop varieties by U.S. farmers is widespread for major crops—94 percent of planted acres for soybeans, and 88 percent for corn in 2012 (USDA-NASS 2012).

The potential exists for GE crop production to impose costs on organic and conventional non-GE production via unintended presence of GE material along the supply chain through:

• Contamination of seed stock

• Accidental cross-pollination

• Accidental co-mingling during planting, harvesting, handling, and storing of crops (Bullock and Desquilbet 2002).

Maintaining the integrity of GE-differentiated product markets relies on segregation protocols such as:

• Hybrid selection and seed purity testing

• Physical ...

Batteries Included: Incentivizing Energy Storage, Lindsay Breslau, Michael Croweak, Alan Witt Oct 2017

Batteries Included: Incentivizing Energy Storage, Lindsay Breslau, Michael Croweak, Alan Witt

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

Distributed Energy Storage (“DES”) technologies that allow households and businesses to store substantial amounts of electricity on site are rapidly advancing and could soon have dramatic impacts on the nation’s electricity generation, transmission, and distribution markets. These technologies could provide numerous benefits, including enhanced energy security, grid stability, and greater support for renewable generation technologies, but several obstacles are slowing their adoption throughout the country. Among these obstacles are stubbornly high manufacturing costs and the potential impacts of DES development on utilities and the traditional energy regulatory framework. Fortunately, policymakers in California, New York, Hawaii, and some other states ...

Green Is Good: How Green Bonds Cultivated Into Wall Street’S Environmental Paradox, Luke Trompeter

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

When the European Investment Bank issued the first green bond in 2007, few imagined this debt instrument would attract mainstream investors. Designed to finance projects ranging from climate change prevention to clean transportation development, green bonds were geared for socially responsible investors concerned with our planet’s sustainability. However, by 2015, green bonds were issued by major corporations like Apple and municipalities like New York City at a record $40 billion. Major players on Wall Street have taken notice and look to cash in on the rapidly growing green bond market. With this new influx of investment and the bonds ...

Never For-Gatt: What Recent Tbt Decisions Reveal About The Appellate Body’S Analysis Of Environmental Regulation Under The Wto Agreements, Ravi Soopramanien

Sustainable Development Law & Policy

Few environmentalists have positive things to say on the impact of the World Trade Organization (WTO) on the environment. WTO legal obligations are frequently cited as the most significant impediment to a range of environmental initiatives, including notably meaningful international coordination to combat climate change, particularly through carbon tax initiatives, and imposition of electronic waste disposal export bans. In this vein, adverse findings of WTO dispute panels on environmental conservation measures tend to attract the ire of international civil society. The tensions between liberal trade and environmental protection can be traced back to the days of the General Agreement on ...
