More Comparative Law Reports from the Law Library of Congress

This is a follow-up to last week's Library Boy post about the Law Library of Congress Report on Restrictions on Genetically Modified Organisms.

The Law Library of Congress has released two other comparative law reports recently. They are:
  • Child Restraint and Seat Belt Regulations: "This report contains citations to the laws on seat belt use in Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, China, Cyprus, Egypt, England and Wales, Fiji, Ghana, Indonesia, Kiribati, Malta, Nauru, Netherlands, New Zealand, Oman, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, and Vietnam, with information on provisions concerning children where available."
  • Bond Requirements in Procurement Protest Procedure in Selected Countries: "This report contains information on twenty-one countries on the question of whether a bond is required for a protest procedure in government procurement.  In some countries the term “deposit” or “fee” is used instead of “bond.”  The majority of countries included in this report require the payment of fees for an administrative review.  These fees can be forfeited if the claim is found to be frivolous.  In Israel, there were proposals to adopt a bond requirement, most recently in 2007, but they were not enacted. Thirty-seven additional jurisdictions were reviewed and not found to have provisions requiring a bond: Angola, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Cape Verde, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, El Salvador, the European Union, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Korea, Sweden, and Vietnam."
The Law Library of Congress is the world’s largest law library, with a collection of over 2.65 million volumes from all ages of history and virtually every jurisdiction in the world.
