Sanitary and phytosanitary standards: Does consumersâ€™ health protection justify developing countriesâ€™ producersâ€™ exclusion?
AbstractThe objective of this paper is to analyze the effects public regulatory tools for food safety, notably maximum admitted contamination thresholds and official controls performed at importing countryâ€™s borders on both developing countriesâ€™ market access and consumersâ€™ health. An Industrial Economics approach is developed that endogenizes the sanitary risk associated with imports by explicitly taking into account the interaction between the public regulatory tools and the strategic response of producers/exporters. Producersâ€™ strategic reaction is shown to crucially depend on the characteristics of the economic environment. Moreover, a regulatory reinforcement may exacerbate producers/exporters exclusion without improving consumersâ€™ health protection.
