Description

International food law is largely a meta-framework, providing models and setting limits to the way states and other entities, such as the European Union, regulate the food sector. The Codex Alimentarius plays a central role at the international level. European law comprises a mix of rules. The core of European food law can be found in a Regulation best known as the 'General Food Law' Regulation. An increasing number of EU Regulations applicable in this field directly address consumers and businesses in the same way national legislation does. In addition, there are EU directives requiring Member States to include harmonized provisions in their national legal system. The private sector has formulated schemes consisting of private standards that are embedded in certification procedures. These schemes are based on EU legislation taking it beyond the borders of the EU, elaborating it in more detail, or simply ensuring compliance. Some schemes are based on international models. This book provides a roadmap of the law applicable to the food sector in the EU. The roadmap provides an overview of the structure and content of food law in such a way that it is clear which rules are applicable.
