Opis - Introduction (...) the future development of international civil aviation can greatly help to create and preserve friendship and understanding among the nations and peoples of the world, yet its abuse can become a threat to the general security; and (...) it is desirable to avoid friction and to promote that cooperation between nations and peoples upon which the peace of the world depends;1 Air passenger rights have become one of the most important consumer rights areas since the number of people who are travelling is growing every year.2 "Over the last thirty years, there has been a boom in mobility in Europe. For millions of citizens travel has become a reality, indeed a right (...) The air transport sector has seen a number of changes: the emergence of low cost airlines, the restructuring of other airlines, the opening up of new routes, and the availability of information or tickets on the Internet with a general reduction in fares. Millions of people have flown as a result of the setting up of an internal aviation market".3 According to Vice-President of the Commission Siim Kallas, responsible for transport "passengers need a common set of principles, so that they can be more easily aware of their rights if something goes wrong with their trip, regardless of the mode of transport they use or whether a journey takes place wholly within a single Member State or goes through an intra-Community or external frontier"4. Europe's success in securing and upholding passenger rights is one of the resounding achievements of the EU transport policy. Therefore, it was 1 Preamble to Convention on International Civil Aviation, signed at Chicago, on 7 December 1944 (Chicago Convention). 2 ECC-Net Air Passenger Rights Report 2011 - in the aftermath of the 'Volcanic Ash Crisis', October 2011 (available at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/ecc/docs/ecc_net_air_passenger_ report_2011.pdf). 3 Communication From The Commission To The European Parliament And The Council Strengthening passenger rights within the European Union, Brussels, 16.2.2005 COM(2005) 46 final. 4 http://ec.europa.eu/transport/passenger-rights/en/index.html 8 Introduction necessary for the European Community to strengthen the rights of passengers and to ensure that air carriers operate under harmonized conditions in a liberalized market. Liberalisation, however, is not enough. Other measures are needed to protect passengers' interests and ensure that they fully profit from the single market.5 Air passenger rights can cover the following fields: People with disabilities and people with reduced mobility; Denied boarding; Cancellation; Long delays; Problems with Baggage; Identity of the airline; Package holidays; Price transparency. All these fields are covered by special regulations. Notwithstanding the most controversial and with unclear provisions is Regulation (EC) 261/20046. Therefore, there is a need to analyse the existing judgments and different theories in legal doctrine regarding this Regulation. It introduced important new rights for air passengers in the event of denied boarding, long delay, cancellations and downgrading. The Regulation took effect on 18 February 2005 and sets a minimum level of quality standards in order to protect passengers. It repealed Regulation (EEC) No. 295/91 and it sets out the entitlements of air passengers when a flight that they intend to travel on is delayed or cancelled, or when they are denied boarding to such a flight due to overbooking, or when the airline is unable to accommodate them in the class they had booked. It is very important to ensure a high level of protection for passengers. Moreover, full account should be taken of the requirements of consumer protection in general. As it is stated in Preamble to Regulation 261/2004, denied boarding and cancellation or long delay of flights cause serious trouble and inconvenience to passengers and the number of passengers denied boarding against their will remains too high, as does that affected by cancellations without prior warning and that affected by long delays. Therefore, it was necessary for the European Community to strengthen the rights of passengers and to ensure that air carriers operate under harmonized conditions in a liberalized market. It is also stated that the number of passengers denied boarding against their will should be reduced by requiring air carriers to call for volunteers to surrender their reservations, in exchange for benefits, instead of denying passengers boarding, and by fully compensating those finally denied boarding and that passengers denied boarding against their will should be able either to cancel their flights, with reimbursement of their tickets, or to continue 5 European Commission, Air - legislation in force since 2005 at: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/ themes/passengers/air/index_en.htm 6 Official Journal of the European Union, L 46, pp. 1-7 (17-2-2004). Introduction 9 them under satisfactory conditions, and should be adequately cared for while awaiting a later flight.7 As IATA indicates, airlines are committed to looking after their passengers, and overlapping passenger rights regimes around the world creates difficulties for the industry and confusion for passengers. The patchwork of regimes defeats the purpose of providing passengers with clear, transparent rights that they can count on. Clear information to passengers on their rights should be the first priority of government and the industry.8 In response to this, the industry unanimously adopted a set of principles at the 2013 IATA Annual General Meeting. The principles call on governments to develop consumer protection regulations that:
European Securities Regulation Kluwer Law International
Prawo, akty prawne
Although efforts to regulate securities at a supranational European level date back to the first company law directive in 1968, it is only since the promulgation of the 1999 Financial Services Action Plan that the playing field has shown any real leveling for market participants. Now, since the adoption in June 2001 of the European Securities Committee as a rule-making authority implementing financial services directives, European securities regulation has emerged as a new and discrete field of legal scholarship. This authoritative book, by a well-known scholar who has been following the European frontier of securities regulation for over a decade, is the first to systematically map this dramatically accelerating new discipline and open the field to research, development, and specialization. Approaching the subject along six major avenues the value of substantive rules; regulatory harmonization; the underlying regulatory methodologies of enacted and proposed European directives; the common market prospectus for securities offerings; investment services; and insider trading Professor Warren never loses sight of the historical context within which European securities regulation has developed, nor of the global economic environment in which it must meet exacting standards of efficiency and transparency. His analysis clearly explains the securities implications of the European laws already adopted as a result of the European Commission s implementation of the Financial Services Action Plan (including the European Company Statute), and also points out the areas that still demand legislative and regulatory attention (including the essential development of an efficient centralized or cross-linked clearance and settlement system). European Securities Regulation will quickly become a standard work. Its great usefulness to scholars, financial regulators, and lawyers for corporate issuers, securities professionals, stock exchanges, and investors is indisputable.

Environmental Impact Assessments: A Need for Harmonisation of EU Law? VDM Verlag Dr. Müller
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) were developed since the 1960ies to serve as tools to predict environmental pressures of projects. In the EU, the "EIA Directive" has been in place for 25 years. It provides a framework within which each member state can find its own ways to implement EIA legislation that is coherent with the scopes and minimum standards of community law. This subsidiarity of the EIA directive creates a conflict between harmonisation and autonomy: Too stringent regimes will fail to acknowledge local environmental conditions; too loose ones will create different economic conditions under which companies should operate in different EU member states. This book seeks to evaluate the degree of divergence in EIA laws between individual member states: A comparative study on the EIA laws of Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom (specifically England and Wales). Despite the fact that all three countries have relatively advanced environmental legislation, significant differences could be identified. This book highlights areas in which a harmonisation of community law might be necessary for the sake of the Common European Market.
