U.S. European Agricultural Trade: Food Safety and Biotechnology Issues [Updated January 17, 2001]   [open pdf - 38KB]

From the Summary: "Differences over food safety measures and biotechnology have affected U.S.-European Union (EU) agricultural trade. Particularly contentious in both bilateral trade relations and in World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement has been the EU's ban on meat produced using growth-promoting hormones. EU policy on bio-engineered products has also been a contentious issue although no formal disputes have been raised in the WTO. Developments in regulation and labeling of bio-engineered products could potentially affect future U.S.-EU agricultural trade. This report will be updated as events warrant."
