The Passing-On Problem in EU Law Damages and Restitution
2017 (English)Book (Refereed)
“Passing-on” occurs when harm or loss incurred by a business is passed on to burden that business’s customers, ie the next level of the supply chain. This book offers analyses of various aspects of passing-on in EU law damages and restitution. Three main legal issues triggered by passing-on are identified: (1) Will downstream claimants have access to bring an action for damages or restitution before the competent court? (2) Will downstream claimants be able to demonstrate sufficient proximity to the original harmful act or unjustified transaction? (3) Will a possibility for claimants to pass on the harm or loss be relevant to the estimation of the award? These issues are assessed within the contexts of actions for damages and restitution against the EU, a Member State, and private individuals. Reasoned suggestions for consistent approaches to passing-on are offered both in the course of discussions and in the final conclusions.
