New EU regulation on invasive species

New EU regulation on invasive species | The Aftermath of the 2007 Global Financial Crisis | Scoop.it

9 September 2013 The European Commission proposed new legislation to prevent and manage the rapidly growing threat from invasive species.

 

The proposal centres round a list of invasive alien species of Union concern, which will be drawn up with the Member States using risk assessments and scientific evidence. Selected species will be banned from the EU, meaning it will not be possible to import, buy, use, release or sell them. Special measures will be taken to deal with issues arising for traders, breeders or pet owners in the transitional period.

The proposal is for three types of intervention:

  - Prevention: Member States will organise checks to prevent the intentional introduction of species of concern. However many species come into the EU unintentionally, as a contaminant in goods or trapped in containers. Member States will have to take action to spot such pathways and take corrective measures.

  - Early warning and rapid response: when Member States detect a species of Union concern that is becoming established, they will take immediate action to eradicate it.

  - Management of established invasive alien species of concern: if species of Union concern are already widely spread, Member States will need to put in place measures to minimise the harm they cause.

The proposal encourages a shift towards a harmonized and more preventive approach, increasing efficiency and lowering damage costs and the cost of action over time.

 

The proposed Regulation will now be examined by the Council and the Parliament. Member States will be fully involved in compiling the list and can propose candidates for listing. The regime will be coupled with an information support mechanism: the European Alien Species Information Network (http://easin.jrc.ec.europa.eu/ )

P2P Consultants's curator insight, May 13, 2013 7:12 PM

It is just a question of time before p2p financing will be regulated in the UK. In the US, the largest p2p lenders, The Lending Club and Prosper, are required to register their notes with the SEC, giving some level of protection. One lawyer says here “ Regulation won’t solve everything. If you put money into one of these platforms, like any investment, the worst that could happen is you’d lose it. ‘But it’s like putting on an educated bet – you’d find it difficult to argue you weren’t informed of the risks.”. Investors have an extreme amount of information in p2p lending in the US. It is perhaps it is one of the most transparent financial products, so regulation in the US would not seem necessary.
