Sanitary and Phytosanitary Export Measurement Requirements: The case of cocoa, cashew nuts, and tuna products

This study for Ghana focuses on the international standards established under the Agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) measures, and on how these measures can help Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) in Africa to trade better with the international markets. It highlights how compliance with SPS measures, and better cooperation between importing and exporting countries in this area, strengthens both trade and market access while respecting health regulations.
