      The book concludes by rightly emphasising that
      the ELD is on the books, being implemented and beginning
      to be applied in real cases. It encourages
      those impacted by the ELD and those wishing to offer
      services in this area to work to promote the clearly
      desirable but ambitious goal of a balanced, reasonable
      and predictable implementation of the ELD.
      The overall conclusion of the reviewer is that at

      As is recognised, this directly impacts upon

      European and national legislators seem to be losing

      Drug Report1 indicates that the drug problem
      in the European Union grows, also in complexity,
      due to the increased use of synthetic drugs on the
      European market.2 The United Nations Single Convention

      for policymaking and regulators, following themassive
      impact of books such as Sunstein’s and Thaler’s,
      Nudge.1 A key part of its appeal is its very practical,
      even technocratic character. These are not fanciful or

      problems, as Sunstein’s book ‘Simpler: The Future

    • Abstract: Despite Iceland´s economic recovery, nearly 48% households continue to struggle to make
      ends meet. This study argues, first, that the main reason behind over-indebtedness in this
      country is a loan system without parallel in Europe, based on a triple cost of credit (fix/variable
      interest, indexation of credit to inflation and negative amortization). Second, the problem
      is examined in the context of European law as some alleged malpractices of indexation

  • The Impact of Safety Culture on Systemic Risk Management
    • Abstract: Notwithstanding impressive gains in occupational safety across the Australian coal mining
      sector, this research reveals that even within the same company, some mines substantially
      outperform others in terms of safety outcomes, raising questions as to why, notwithstanding
      the introduction of sophisticated and systemic risk management mandated by government,
      such variation still exists. Potential contributory variables are considered (technology,

  • Food, Safety and the Behavioural Factor of Risk
    • Abstract: This paper aims to demonstrate that the current application of the concepts of risk and unsafety
      in Regulation 178/2002 (GFL) results in a grey area within EU food safety regulation.
      By means of the food safety risk assessment of aspartame it is illustrated that “grey area
      foods”, although not “unsafe” according to legal definition, could compromise human health
      because of, i.e., their nutritional composition. It will be argued that the grey area emerges

  • Uses and Potential Abuses of “Negative Claims” in the EU: The

      substances are not present in a foodstuff. Legitimate uses of regulated negative claims in
      the EU include some nutrition claims and “gluten-free” claims. Some EUMember States have
      legislated on “GM-free” claims. The article describes inmore detail some cases (i.e., BPA-free,
      MSG-free, Aspartame-free and palm oil-free), where negative claims are used with an implied
