Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled WTO-Technical Barriers and SPS Measures presents a list of terms and concepts. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. The idea behind the Max Planck Commentaries on World Trade Law is to explain the whole range of World Trade Organization (WTO) law in authoritative and practical article-by-article type commentaries. Technical standards are increasingly determining the development, production, trade in and marketing of goods and services. They thus have a considerable impact on international trade. The Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) and the agreement on the application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS), both negotiated during the Uruguay Round to replace the standards code and in force since 1995, reflect this growing importance and regulate their permissibility.

Keywords: Max Planck; Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS); Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT); World Trade Law
