Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the precautionary principle. It begins by examining the development of the precautionary principle and its transformation into a general principle of EU law. It then analyses the use of the principle for review of Community and Member State action. It also considers the political status of the principle and the way in which it informs decision-making. The chapter concludes by assessing the principle from a more normative dimension.
