European Sanitary Agreement Number

Directive 94/36/EC imposes the colours that can be used for tampons. 1. When establishing whether a sanitary measure applied by an exporting Party achieves the appropriate level of health protection of the importing Party, the Contracting Parties shall follow a procedure comprising the following steps: another important case of SPS is that of hormone-treated beef. In 1996, the United States and Canada challenged before the WTO Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) a series of EUROPEAN directives prohibiting the import and sale of meat and meat products treated with certain growth hormones. The complainants claimed that the EU directives were contrary to, inter alia, several provisions of the SPS Agreement. In 2004, while the ban on hormone-treated meat was still in force, the EU initiated a new procedure before the DSD to obtain the lifting of the countermeasures applied by the United States and Canada. .
