Case Study of Consumer Law and your Rights

A Study about Consumer Law and your Rights

Introduction: The National Consumer Agency (NCA) is an independent statutory agency established under the Consumer Protection Act 2007. The Minister for Enterprise Trade & Employment established the Agency in response to the publication of a 2005 report by the Consumer Strategy Group entitled ‘Make Consumers Count’. This identified important deficiencies in the protection and promotion of consumer rights in Ireland. The powers and role of the former Office of the Director of Consumer Affairs (ODCA) are now vested in the National Consumer Agency.

Consumer law: Consumer law applies to a person who comes within the legal meaning of the term ‘consumer’. A ‘consumer’ is defined as a person who buys goods or services for their personal use or consumption. The ‘Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act, 1980’ sets out consumers’ basic rights in respect of buying goods and services and details of its provisions are set out later in this case study. The introduction of the new Consumer Protection Act in 2007 marks the most important and comprehensive development in consumer protection law in recent decades.

A Case Study on The Aynak Copper Deposit, Afghanistan

A Case Study about The Aynak Copper Deposit, Afghanistan

Overview: Mineral resource development today can affect a nation for many years, sometimes for generations to come. Consequently, the award of mineral rights can be one of the most far-reaching activities a government undertakes. Mineral resource development is thus often enshrined in constitutions and overarching mineral laws to ensure that such development is undertaken in the public interest, in recognition of the strategic and economic contribution of minerals to the nation, and with the greater good of society in mind.

In a majority of countries, subsurface rights (mining cadastre) take precedence over surface rights (land cadastre). Subsurface rights and access to explore and extract a mineral resource can be granted to a third party by the state for a defined period of time; it is in most cases the esponsibility of the subsurface rights owner to negotiate rights to access the property, within the provisions of applicable laws and regulations, with the surface land owner.
