The oversight of consumer product safety is a complex system involving many federal agencies. The United States Government Accountability Office identified eight agencies that have direct oversight responsibilities for consumer product safety: the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Department of Housing and Urban Development, Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, and the U.S. Coast Guard (within the Department of Homeland Security). All eight agencies conduct regulatory activities to promote consumer product safety, such as rulemaking, standard setting, risk assessment, enforcement, and product recalls. This book examines which federal agencies oversee consumer product safety and their roles and responsibilities; the extent and effects of any fragmentation or overlap in the oversight of consumer products; and collaboration among agencies to address any negative effects of fragmentation or overlap. This book also discusses the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.
This book provides a broad conspectus on the application of EU and international regulation of the food sector on English law. It is aimed at practitioners and students of this vital and emerging branch of law, which has become an important part of current political and legal debate. It is written not just for lawyers as a statement of current law, but is also aimed at all those involved or interested in the food industry who wish to familiarise themselves with how the law is applied practically in this jurisdiction. The book commences with a short conceptual framework for the study of food law. It then provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of current English law, explaining fully the detailed processes by which both international and national law and EU decision making have impacted upon most aspects of the production, sale and consumption of food in England. The book explains and assesses the operation of the current law by describing in detail the roles of Government, the Food Standards Agency and local enforcement authorities in the making and enforcing of laws concerning food. The work contains full outlines of the developments in the most significant areas of food law. It concentrates specifically on topics such as food labelling and advertising, quality and compositional requirements, geographical food names, genetic modification, organic production, animal welfare and also the role of law in tackling poor health, obesity, and diet-related disease. The book, though primarily designed as a law text, goes beyond the usual confines of such works. It sets out to explain and describe the impact of successive food crises, such as BSE and the use of horsemeat in beef products, on food safety and transparency requirements. The book considers and assesses how the existing rules on the chemical and biological safety of food impact on our law, and concludes with a review of the developing legal issues concerning the environmental impacts of current and proposed food law, in particular the relationship between food law, climate change and food security.
European Consumer Access to Justice Revisited takes into account both procedural and substantive law questions in order to give the term 'access to justice' an enhanced meaning. Specifically, it analyses developments and recent trends in EU consumer law and aims to evaluate their potential for increasing consumer confidence in the cross-border market. Via a critical assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of the means initiated at the EU level, the author highlights possible detriments to the cross-border business-to-consumer (B2C) market. To remedy this, he introduces an alternative method of creating a legal framework that facilitates B2C transactions in the EU - 'access to justice 2.0'.

The present book examines both theoretical and practical aspects of the law on indications of geographical origin (IGOs) within the framework of European Union (EU) law, pursuing four distinct yet mutually related aims. First, it discusses theoretical issues of the law on IGOs including its historical foundations, terminology, principles of regulation, legal subjectivity, protection models and loss of protection. Second, it covers the EU law on IGOs from a systematic point of view. Particularly, the systematic review of the EU law on IGOs includes an in-depth analysis of and commentary on the relevant and applicable regulations. Third, it examines current legislative initiatives and further development options for the EU law on IGOs. Finally, it reveals the interrelation of the EU law on one hand and the national laws of EU Member States on the other with regard to IGOs, focusing on harmonized and non-harmonized areas of law.

EU consumer law is the core of European civil law. In recent years, in particular between the first edition of 2009 and this second edition, it has been subject to spectacular decisions by the Court of Justice of the European Union, with significant consequences for Member States' law. This revised and thoroughly updated new edition follows and analyses this process in such important areas as unfair commercial practices, unfair terms, cross-border consumer protection, and product liability. There has been legislation in the area of consumer rights in distance and off-premise contracts, and very recently consumer ADR and ODR. Other projects are still in the pipeline, e.g. mortgage credit; another is subject to heated controversy, namely the proposed optional Common European Sales Law with an important part on consumer law. Even more importantly, the very concept of consumer and consumer protection has been subject to intense debate. Does EU law limit itself to the 'informed consumer standard', or should the 'weaker' or even the 'vulnerable consumer standard' be given more attention? The original team of authors Hans W.- Micklitz, Norbert Reich and Peter Rott have been strengthened by the addition of Klaus Tonner. They have worked together to take a broad horizontal approach to the EU consumer law acquis, thereby reflecting on the history, achievements, recent trends and also shortcomings of EU law in this important field of law. The change from 'minimum' to 'full' or 'targeted harmonisation' is critically analysed, and the central role of the CJEU documented and emphasised.'This book, distilling insight from a much longer volume originally in German, offers a clear and authoritative survey of EU law developments.'Luke Nottage in Australian Journal of Competition and Consumer Law (2016)About the first edition of this book:'[...] a publication of which the importance is high, also for the development of law in general'In Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Burgerlijk Recht 5 (2009) 194'[...] stimulating, challenging and well-researched.'Angus Johnston in Common Market Law Review (2010) 956'[...] the book provides a concise and up-to-date overview of European Consumer Law.'Jan Schurnbrand in RabelsZ 74 (2010) 891'[...] certainly an important accomplishment.'Marco B.M.

This supplement is designed primarily for use with Michael M. Greenfield's casebook, Consumer Transactions, 6th Edition, and includes the statutory and regulatory materials referenced in that work.
This new edition provides extensive and systematic coverage of federal and state law governing consumer transactions. The book introduces students to the case law applying the common law, statutes, and regulations to automobile sales and finance, home mortgages, predatory lending, and other transactions. To enhance the students' mastery of statutory analysis, it makes extensive use of problems. The law has changed significantly since publication of the prior edition, including enactment of the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act (Credit CARD Act) and the Dodd-Frank Act. The Sixth Edition of Consumer Transactions provides extensive coverage of this and other legislation, as well as recent developments in all the other areas of consumer law. Material new to the Sixth Edition relates to * restrictions on the practices of credit card issuers; * the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, including the new prohibition against abusive acts and practices and the new rules on mortgage lending; * additional treatment of payday loans and automobile title lending, yield-spread premiums, and dealer-participation (upcharges); * credit reporting, unconscionability, and mandatory arbitration (Concepcion and its aftermath). * the impact of debt buyers; and * the use of imprisonment in connection with debt collection To accommodate the new material, judicious deletions have enabled the book to remain at approximately 900 pages. The book is accompanied by a Statutory Supplement, and a Guide for Teachers will be available.
