La conciliation entre les impératifs de sécurité alimentaire et la liberté du commerce dans l'accord SPS


  • Mai-Anh Ngo


The actual, SPS agreement allows a limited taking into account of the food safety requirements. The room for manœuvre of the States is relatively restricted, in particular because of the central place conferred on the scientific justification when evaluating the validity of sanitary measures. However, in the future, a new balance can be found between the requirements of food safety and the free trade, in particular by reconsidering the role of science in SPS agreement.
