SPS: Sanitary and Phytosanitary Issues

Sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures are often necessary to protect human, animal and plant life or health, including to protect them from risks arising from imported goods. Such measures should be based on the WTO SPS Agreement, international standards, recommendations or guidelines or be based on scientific principles. However, third countries often impose unjustified SPS measures in a way that the SPS measure negatively affects the EU exports of agriculture and fishery products.
