Quando La Legislazione Può Essere Un Ostacolo Alla Libera Circolazione Di Prodotti Alimentari: Il Caso Del "Semaforo Nutrizionale", Luis González Vaqué 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

Quando La Legislazione Può Essere Un Ostacolo Alla Libera Circolazione Di Prodotti Alimentari: Il Caso Del "Semaforo Nutrizionale", Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

È stato scritto molto sul criticato (e criticabile) Regolamento (UE) n. 1169/2011 relativo alla fornitura di informazioni sugli alimenti ai consumatori. ‘Brevitatis causae’, nel presente articolo ci occuperemo in particolare delle disposizioni relative all'etichettatura nutrizionale, non applicabili subito dopo l'entrata in vigore di tale Regolamento; si tratta di un insieme di regole ambigue e confuse, la cui applicazione può supporre un reale e potenziale ostacolo alla libera circolazione dei prodotti alimentari all'interno dell'Unione Europea (UE), vale a dire, tutto il contrario di quello che dovrebbe proporsi come obiettivo…


Pharmaceutical Lemons: Innovation And Regulation In The Drug Industry, Ariel Katz 2016 University of Toronto

Pharmaceutical Lemons: Innovation And Regulation In The Drug Industry, Ariel Katz

Ariel Katz

Before a new drug can be marketed, the Food and Drug Administration must be satisfied that it is safe and effective. According to conventional wisdom, the cost and delay involved in this process diminish the incentives to invest in the development of new drugs. Accordingly, several reforms aimed at restoring such incentives have been implemented or advocated. This Article challenges the central argument that drug regulation and drug innovation are necessarily at odds with one another. Although intuitively appealing, the argument that drug regulation negatively affects the incentives to innovate does not fully capture the role that regulation plays in ...

The Impact Of International Agreements On European Union Food Law, Luis González Vaqué, Isabel Segura Roda 2016 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

The Impact Of International Agreements On European Union Food Law, Luis González Vaqué, Isabel Segura Roda

Luis González Vaqué

This paper discusses how international agreements affect the development of Food Law in both MemberStates and the EU itself. The relevance of this topic lies in the major structural changes currently affecting the whole agri-food system as a result of two conflicting trends which are more than just political or economic: on the one hand, the seemingly inevitable process of globalization, and on the other, the growing trend towards (re)localizing production, trade and consumption. 


States Vs. Fda, Catherine M. Sharkey 2016 NYU School of Law

States Vs. Fda, Catherine M. Sharkey

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

In the United States, food and drug safety is regulated in two ways: a stringent ex ante, national regime led by the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and a robust ex post system of state-law enforcement. This federalist structure, operating on dual regulatory levels, sets the stage for synergy and for conflict.

Two recent high-profile preemption lawsuits showcase a novel dimension of the dual regulatory structure: the role of states as competing and/or complementary actors vis-à-vis the FDA in regulating food and drug safety. In Zogenix, Inc. v. Patrick, a federal district court enjoined the Massachusetts government from enacting ...

Reflexiones Con Respecto A La Política De La Dea , Y, De Antinarcóticos En América Latina®, Daniel Fernando Gomez Tamayo

Daniel Fernando Gómez Tamayo

Reflexiones con respecto a la ley 1696 de 2013 y  la  sentencia C 221 de 1991 que despenalizó la dosis personal, pues a juicio de estudiosos de las políticas públicas frente a las drogas consideran que el estado y las mafias deben conciliar sus intereses;  independiente del debate de la legalización o no;  es claro que  se debe realizar campañas educativas y preventivas para evitar que los adolescentes caigan en el flagelo de la drogadicción como consecuencia de la guerra.

Reflexiones con respecto: al negocio redondo de  la DEA en Colombia y en México, la ley 599 de 2000  que penalizó la producción: de la cocaína, de la marihuana y del opio que son útiles en medicina y en la odontología. Respetando opiniones distintas, el mercado de estupefacientes no se creo por la  sentencia C- 221 de 1991 que  despenalizó la dosis personal; sino por leyes de la oferta y la demanda. ¿Por qué razón el gobierno nacional de Colombia y el gobierno de México no cambian esa guerra absurda impuesta por los Estados Unidos contra los productores? ¿no será ...


An Unsealed Package: The Ninth Circuit Creates A Circuit Split When Interpreting Fda Regulations On Food Label Nutrient Content Claims In Reid V. Johnson & Johnson, Danielle M. Haikal 2016 Boston College Law School

An Unsealed Package: The Ninth Circuit Creates A Circuit Split When Interpreting Fda Regulations On Food Label Nutrient Content Claims In Reid V. Johnson & Johnson, Danielle M. Haikal

Boston College Law Review

On March 13, 2015, in Reid v. Johnson & Johnson, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held that the statement “No Trans Fat” on the label of Benecol, a food that contains between 0 and 0.5 grams of trans fat, was not a permitted nutrient content claim. The court held that such a statement made on the label was false or misleading and was therefore not authorized by Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) regulations. The court came to this conclusion despite the Third Circuit reaching the opposite conclusion in 2013, in Young v. Johnson & Johnson, regarding ...

When Tuna Still Isn’T Always Tuna: Federal Food Safety Regulatory Regime Continues To Inadequately Address Seafood Fraud, Stephen Wagner 2016 University of Maine School of Law

When Tuna Still Isn’T Always Tuna: Federal Food Safety Regulatory Regime Continues To Inadequately Address Seafood Fraud, Stephen Wagner

Ocean and Coastal Law Journal

In 2012 alone, Americans consumed approximately 4.5 billion pounds of seafood, over 90% of which was imported. Simply put, Americans eat a lot of seafood, with upwards of 500 different species available to satiate the demand. Consequently, imported and domestic seafood in the United States is a thriving 80.2 billion dollar market, with certain highly desired species of fish fetching steep prices.

One fundamental assumption of the consumer-driven market is that the label on the seafood correctly identifies the species of seafood, thereby, among other things, justifying the market price. It is increasingly clear, however, that this assumption ...


Congress Puts The Usda’S Cool Enforcement On Ice, Golden Gate University School of Law 2016 Golden Gate University School of Law

Congress Puts The Usda’S Cool Enforcement On Ice, Golden Gate University School Of Law

GGU Law Review Blog

It is more important that Americans have safer food than to know if their steak is “single‑origin”. Especially in the wake of major E. coli outbreaks at mega chains like Chipotle, food safety in the United States should take priority over pseudo‑protectionist policymaking and food transparency.

A Potential Liability Scenario For "Non-Gmo" Labeling, David Wallace

David L Wallace

(Mis)Perceptions Of Law In Consumer Markets, Oren Bar-Gill, Kevin E. Davis 2016 Harvard Law School

(Mis)Perceptions Of Law In Consumer Markets, Oren Bar-Gill, Kevin E. Davis

New York University Law and Economics Working Papers

There are good reasons to believe that consumers’ behavior is sometimes influenced by systematic misperceptions of legal norms that govern product quality. Consumers might misperceive specific rules, such as those found in food safety regulations, as well as more general standards, such as the unconscionability doctrine or limitations on waivers of default substantive or procedural rights. When demand is affected by systematic misperceptions of legal norms, lawmakers may be able to maximize welfare by deviating from the legal standard that would be optimal in the absence of misperception. We use a formal model to characterize these optimal deviations under different ...
