Standard Setting and the Law
The role of the standards in paving the way to the local and global connections of our daily lives; the risks they bring with themselves, first of all for competition; their not simple taxonomy and the models for their regulation. A book well above the standards was needed to give us such a ponderous list of contents. Andrea Giannaccari has written it.
Prof. Giuliano Amato - Judge of the Italian Constitutional Court
This book provides a well-documented and insightful comparison of the EU and US systems of standardization. It highlights the differences between the centralized, public driven EU approach and the decentralized market based approach of the US system. The book is not only appealing to academics but also to policy makers, since it provides a better understanding of the problems in dealing with international standardization issues.
