El Derecho Alimentario De La Ue Ante Los Desafíos En Materia De Nutrición, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

El Derecho Alimentario De La Ue Ante Los Desafíos En Materia De Nutrición, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Las cifras de sobrepeso, obesidad y otras enfermedades no transmisibles relacionadas con la dieta de la población europea son demasiado elevadas y siguen aumentando. Esto tiene una incidencia negativa sobre la esperanza de vida, reduce la calidad de vida de los ciudadanos de la Unión Europea y afecta a la sociedad, por ejemplo, induciendo a unos elevados gastos sanitarios que pueden afectar a la sostenibilidad de los sistemas de salud.
 

Palabras clave: Nutrición, sobrepeso, obesidad, enfermedades no transmisibles, patrones de consumo alimentario sanos


L'Indicazione Dell'origine Dei Prodotti Agroalimentari Secondo Il Recente Decreto Francese Sul Latte E Sulla Carne: Quali Sviluppi Si Prevedono Nell'unione Europea?, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

L'Indicazione Dell'origine Dei Prodotti Agroalimentari Secondo Il Recente Decreto Francese Sul Latte E Sulla Carne: Quali Sviluppi Si Prevedono Nell'unione Europea?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Non ci stancheremo di ripeterlo: imporre l'obbligo dell'indicazione d'origine appare giuridicamente infondato, dato che nulla impedisce ai produttori di ricorrere a tale indicazione su base volontaria (e, naturalmente, veritiera) nell'intento di soddisfare quei consumatori presumibilmente preoccupati di conoscere la provenienza (nazionale o estera) degli alimenti acquistati. Infine, sembra utile un avvertimento: la menzione dell'origine, quando viene obbligatoriamente imposta, a torto o a ragione, finisce irrimediabilmente per creare una frammentazione del Mercato interno europeo.

Consumer Preferences For Performance Defaults, Franklin G. Snyder, Ann M. Mirabito 2016 Texas A&M University School of Law

Consumer Preferences For Performance Defaults, Franklin G. Snyder, Ann M. Mirabito

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

Commercial law in the United States is designed to facilitate private transactions, and thus to enforce the presumed intent of the parties, who generally are free to negotiate the terms they choose. But these contracts inevitably have gaps, both because the parties cannot anticipate every situation that might arise from their relationship, and because negotiation is not costless. When courts are faced with these gaps in a litigation context, they supply default terms to fill them. These defaults usually are set to reflect what courts believe similar parties would have agreed to if they had addressed the issue. These “majoritarian ...


Johnson V. Wells Fargo Bank Nat’L Ass’N, 132 Nev. Adv. Op. 70 (September 29, 2016), Brittni Griffith 2016 Nevada Law Journal

Johnson V. Wells Fargo Bank Nat’L Ass’N, 132 Nev. Adv. Op. 70 (September 29, 2016), Brittni Griffith

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

The Court considered whether the Bank Secrecy Act prevents financial institutions from disclosing all investigative information in discovery to an adverse party. The Court held that the Bank Secrecy Act only precludes the disclosure of information relating to the existence of a suspicious activity report or the procedural nature of the suspicious activity report’s generation.


¿El Decreto Francés Sobre La Obligatoriedad De Indicar El Origen De Algunos Ingredientes, Pone En Peligro El Mercado Único Alimentario?, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

¿El Decreto Francés Sobre La Obligatoriedad De Indicar El Origen De Algunos Ingredientes, Pone En Peligro El Mercado Único Alimentario?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

En mi opinión la autorización por parte de la Comisión Europea del Decreto n° 2016-1137 es un grave error que pone efectivamente en peligro el Mercado único alimentario.
Dicha autorización ha sido otorgada por una endeble Comisión, ahora aún más debilitada por el Brexit. Además, es la consecuencia de las veleidades oportunistas relativas a la eventual indicación del origen de ciertos ingredientes incluidas en el desafortunado Reglamento (UE) n° 1169/2011 (véanse los artículos 26, y el considerando nº 59 de dicha normativa comunitaria).

The Erosion Of Autonomy In Online Consumer Transactions, Eliza MIK 2016 Singapore Management University

The Erosion Of Autonomy In Online Consumer Transactions, Eliza Mik

Eliza Mik

Online businesses influence consumer behaviour by means of a wide range of technologies that determine what information is displayed as well as how and when it is displayed. This creates an unprecedented power imbalance between the transacting parties, raising questions not only about the permissible levels of procedural exploitation in contract law, together with the adequacy of existing consumer protections but also about the impact of technology on consumer autonomy. There is, however, no single technology that threatens the latter. It is the combined, mutually-enforcing effect of multiple technologies that influence consumer choices at different stages in the transacting process ...


Product Intervention For Retail Structured Investment Products: A Comparison Of Rules In Singapore, Hong Kong And Taiwan, Christopher C. H. CHEN 2016 Singapore Management University

Product Intervention For Retail Structured Investment Products: A Comparison Of Rules In Singapore, Hong Kong And Taiwan, Christopher C. H. Chen

Research Collection School Of Law

This article compares new product intervention rules in Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan for complex structured investment products. Singapore’s approach is to improve firms’ internal safeguard, while Hong Kong’s approach is to require prior authorisation for new unlisted structured investment products by the securities regulator. Taiwan’s approach is to have a self regulatory body reviewing a product beforehand. This article argues that it is difficult to review the merit of a financial product in advance and thus it is difficult to have a true gatekeeper for toxic financial products. Before product intervention, we must first identify clear ...


¿Qué Hay De “Nuevo” En El Reglamento (Ue) 2015/2283 Relativo A Los Nuevos Alimentos?, Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

¿Qué Hay De “Nuevo” En El Reglamento (Ue) 2015/2283 Relativo A Los Nuevos Alimentos?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

El recientemente adoptado Reglamento sobre nuevos alimentos tiene por objeto mejorar las condiciones para que las empresas puedan comercializar más fácilmente alimentos nuevos e innovadores en la UE, manteniendo siempre un elevado nivel de seguridad alimentaria para los consumidores europeos. Permitirá a los consumidores europeos disfrutar de una mayor oferta de alimentos y a la industria agroalimentaria europea —el segundo mayor sector de empleo en Europa—, gozar de un entorno más favorable para aprovechar las innovaciones, lo que, a su vez, favorecerá el crecimiento y el empleo. Un nuevo alimento es aquel que no se consumió en cantidades significativas en ...

Countercyclical Regulation And Its Challenges, Patricia McCoy 2016 Boston College Law School

Countercyclical Regulation And Its Challenges, Patricia Mccoy

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Historically, U.S. financial regulation has normally been procyclical, with federal regulators and Congress relaxing oversight during bull markets and cracking down once financial crises hit. After 2008, the wisdom of this approach came under attack. Critics argued that procyclical regulation left financial institutions undercapitalized and unable to withstand panics. Other critics asserted that economic downturns could be mitigated and even averted if regulators took steps to puncture asset bubbles. The concept of countercyclical regulation responds to both of these critiques. This new approach posits that financial regulation would be more effective if financial regulation clamped down during financial expansions ...


Toward An International Constitution Of Patient Rights, Alison Poklaski 2016 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Toward An International Constitution Of Patient Rights, Alison Poklaski

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

In the past decade, medical tourism-the travel of patients across borders to receive medical treatment-has undergone unprecedented growth, fueled by the globalization of health care and related industries. While medical tourism can benefit patients through increased access to treatment and cost-savings, medical travel also raises concerns about ensuring quality of care and legal redress in medical malpractice. Moreover, existing regulations fail to address these unprecedented issues. The multilateral adoption of an International Constitution of Patient Rights (ICPR) is necessary in order to more effectively preserve medical tourism's benefits and guard against its risks.

Litigating Medical Device Premarket Classification Decisions For Small Businesses: Have The Courts Given The Fda Too Much Deference? The Case For Taking The Focus Off Of Efficacy, Stephanie P. Fekete 2016 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Litigating Medical Device Premarket Classification Decisions For Small Businesses: Have The Courts Given The Fda Too Much Deference? The Case For Taking The Focus Off Of Efficacy, Stephanie P. Fekete

Catholic University Law Review

The manufacturing of innovative medical devices is important for the continued success and growth of the U.S. health care system and economy. The medical device industry is almost exclusively comprised of small businesses. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the medical device industry and employs a rigorous approval process to determine when products may enter the market. While the FDA’s goal is to authorize the sale of innovative devices that are safe for patient use, device manufacturers argue that the process to obtain FDA approval is unnecessarily expensive, burdensome, and has systemic problems. As a ...

Eu: Has The Time Come To Simplify Food Law?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Current EU food legislation is extremely complex, and unsustainably so. Furthermore, in the context of a food chain consisting of several stages between production and consumption, various factors have helped foster even greater levels of complexity, such as the national exceptions included in the Regulations, the neo-protectionist tendencies of some Member States (typical of a period of generalised economic crisis), etc. A world which is increasingly globalized, competitive and dominated by new technologies needs an effective and efficient regulatory environment: in this context, the Commission has set up the “REFIT Platform” to conduct an ongoing dialogue with Member States and ...

¿Del Consumo Sostenible A Una Economía Circular?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Alrededor de 100 millones de toneladas de alimentos se desperdician anualmente en la UE. Si no se hace nada para atajar este despilfarro, los residuos de alimentos podrían aumentar a más de 120 millones de toneladas en 2020. El desperdicio de alimentos no es sólo un problema ético y económico, sino que también afecta al medio ambiente y pone en peligro los limitados recursos naturales de los que disponemos. Todos los eslabones de la cadena alimentaria tienen un papel que desempeñar en la prevención y la reducción de los residuos de alimentos: incluyendo los que producen y procesan alimentos (agricultores ...


The Politics Of Arbitration Law And Centrist Proposals For Reform, 2016 Selected Works

The Politics Of Arbitration Law And Centrist Proposals For Reform

Stephen Ware

Arbitration law in the United States is far more controversial when applied to individuals than to businesses. While enforcement of arbitration agreements between businesses sometimes raises legal issues that divide courts, those issues tend to interest only scholars, lawyers, and other specialists in the field of arbitration. In contrast, enforcement of arbitration agreements between a business and an individual (such as a consumer or employee) raises legal issues that interest many members of Congress and various interest groups, all of whom have taken positions on significant proposals for law reform. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has extensively researched and reported ...


The Insurability Of Claims For Restitution, Christopher French 2016 Penn State Law

The Insurability Of Claims For Restitution, Christopher French

Journal Articles

Does and should a wrongdoer’s liability insurance cover an aggrieved party’s claim for restitution (e.g., a claim for the disgorgement of ill-gotten gains)? This article answers those questions. It does so by first answering the question of whether claims for restitution are covered under the terms of liability insurance policies. Then, after concluding that they are, it addresses the question of whether claims for restitution should be insurable as a matter of public policy and insurance law theory. There are long-standing legal and equitable principles that, on the one hand, dictate that a wrongdoer should not be ...
