About Single Common Market Organisation (Regulation (EC) 1234/2007)

The Single Common Market Organisation (Regulation (EC) 1234/2007) (sCMO) brings together in one single document more than 40 separate regulations governing the various agricultural market organisations in the European Union. In this manner the regulatory scope of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has been simplified. Thanks to the Regulation a field of law which, despite its political and economic importance for Europe, has been very difficult to access, has become much clearer and more transparent. This Commentary describes and amplifies the meaning of the Regulation and will guide readers through its many intricacies.

“... it is quickly evident that each contributor to the book brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his or her chosen subject-matter and that their text is both clear and authoritative...the book should certainly be welcomed as a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the workings of the current legislation. It will certainly be of immense help to those whose work brings them into contact with the commercial aspects of European agricultural law.” –  Brian Jack, European Law Review, December 2012

“...the Commentary under review represents, to this reviewer's knowledge, the first detailed and extensive legal analysis available in the English language of Regulation (EC) 1234/2007 establishing the Single Common Market Organisation.
...writing an extended commentary on Regulation 1234/2007 can be considered a difficult but also courageous undertaking. Mögele and Erlbacher however managed to edit a highly valuable volume
Because the vast majority of the authors (editors included) work (as members of the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development or as members of the Legal Service) at the European Commission and deal with this area of EU law, the comments offer well-informed and first-hand information. They expertly navigate previous legislative acts and case law and then pilot through the current text of Regulation.
...the book represents an unparalleled analysis of Regulation 1234/2007 and is a magnificent addition to the legal literature in the field of the CAP. It will not only add to the current debate on the new rules on the sCMO but it will prove to be essential reading for officers, practitioners and policy makers involved in the area of agricultural law.
