Effects of disclosure on business compliance: a framework for the analysis of disclosure regimes
European Food and Feed Law Review p. 255- 263
Disclosure of inspection results not only contributes to consumer empowerment, but also affect company compliance. Disclosure stimulates compliance because fear of bad publicity serves as a deterrent for violations. However, excessively stigmatic disclosure can become counter-productive and lead to defiance. To help draw the balance between a deterrent and stigmatising approach, this article introduces a framework for the analysis of disclosure regimes. To illustrate, the framework is used to compare the Danish and Dutch disclosure practices.
