    Abstract

    WHO Recommendation 8 urges Member States to regulate the cross-border marketing of unhealthy food. This concern has become even more pressing than it was in 2010 in light of the advance of digital marketing and other forms of marketing, which are inherently cross-border and therefore more difficult to regulate at national level by States individually. However, cross-border marketing regulation will only be useful to Member States if it is sufficiently robust; if not, the risk is that it may hinder rather than support their efforts at national level.
