Turnkey solutions to Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) challenges for safe and sustainable agriculture and market access

The ability to access and maintain new markets is critical to growth in international trade of agricultural products and an important goal for many producers throughout the world.  The concept of market access refers to achieving compliance with tariff and non-tariff measures implemented by importing countries on imported agricultural products.
As the world works towards the reduction of tariff measures, the importance of non-tariff measures has increased considerably.  Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) and Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) are non-tariff measures that are extremely important for agricultural trade.
The World Trade Organization’s Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary measures (WTO-SPS Agreement) gives Member States the sovereign right to protect human, animal and plant health and life, and the environment within their borders against foreign organisms by means of technically justified risk mitigation measures.
The core team of SPS experts at PhytoSolutions has a combined experience of more than 60 years in market access environment, both in regulatory and private sector capacities.  We pride ourselves in providing turn-key solutions for any SPS related market access challenges our clients may experience and are devoted to the improvement of food safety and security in agricultural trade.
