Trade always starts with a negotiation, and a negotiation proceeds best if both parties have a common framework through which to understand each other’s expectations. The WTO–OIE framework of trade agreements and international standards serves as the basis for the exchange of information between exporting and importing countries. The intention of this issue is to present a series of articles that assist OIE and WTO Members and the international community interested in trade in animals and animal products to better understand the frameworks created by the WTO trade agreements and OIE international standards, both through the discussion of the theory underpinning these standards/agreements and by providing examples of their implementation.
