(p.1) Introduction
Regulating Health and Environmental Risks under WTO Law

Lukasz Gruszczynski

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter sets out the objectives of the book, its scope, the underlying methodology, and the plan for subsequent discussion. The central question of the book is whether the system established by the SPS Agreement is capable of addressing existing and potential challenges in the field of international risk regulation. The book also assesses the consistency of the case law in its interpretation of SPS provisions and the normative content of those requirements, which have not yet been addressed by the WTO jurisprudence. Its analysis is predominantly based on examination of the text of the SPS Agreement and the corresponding case law. This exegetic approach is justified through reference to the objectives of the book as well as the practice of WTO dispute settlement bodies.

Keywords:   international trade, risk regulation, SPS Agreement, World Trade Organization, WTO, Vienna Convention
