Countries in the SPS Barrier database

There are about 8,000 records in the data­base: about 4,000 con­tain­ing SPS (‘health’)barrrier noti­fi­ca­tions and a sim­i­lar num­ber con­tain­ing TBT (‘technical’)barrier noti­fi­ca­tions. Nine­ty coun­tries noti­fied SPS bar­ri­ers between 1999 and the third quar­ter of 2005. Over the fold, there’s a list ofthese coun­tries, with links into the coun­try-records in the data­base… If you are logged-in (and reg­is­tered … it’s free) you will find a list of coun­tries below. Click on a name to see a new win­dow with the first of the record for that coun­try from the SPS data­base. Use the ‘List’ tab to see all of the records at once in a ‘spread­sheet’ format.[1]

fn1. Strict­ly speak­ing the WTO mem­bers noti­fiy­ing the bar­ri­ers are not all ‘coun­tries’: Hong Kong and Tai­wan are not con­sid­ered ‘coun­tries’ although they are full WTO members.
