Producers of agricultural products and manufacturers
of processed foods are increasingly confronting quarantine controls.
While each country currently asserts its own rules, standards
being developed by the Office International des Epizooties
(world animal health organisation), the International Plant
Protection Convention and other relevant bodies, can be brought into
play to argue your case.
What If … A Government Banned Imports
Of Your Product?
An exporter of agricultural
products from Country A confronted an immediate ban
on imports of its products into Country B because
of a change to that country’s quarantine
laws aimed at preventing the introduction of certain
animal diseases. Tanda lobbied the Quarantine and Trade
Authorities of Country B, explained that the laws would
breach the WTO Sanitary & Phytosanitary Agreement,
negotiated a re-draft of the laws to incorporate OIE
standards and proved that the client’s manufacturing
processes complied with those standards. Trade in the
products was allowed to resume.
