Abstract

Anna Szajkowska and Bernd van der Meulen analyse in their contribution, Science Based Governance? EU Food Regulation Submitted to Risk Analysis, the scope of application of risk analysis and the precautionary principle in EU food safety regulation. To what extent does this technocratic, science-based methodology set limitations on the legislator in deciding on food safety measures that restrict trade? Can factors other than science be taken into account in food safety regulation? Are EU food safety measures ‘legal’ under international trade obligations?
