Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports
Argentina expressed concern with regard to rising trade barriers on wheat grain for industrial and planting purposes. Argentina was free from tilletia indica (Karnal bunt). Argentina requested a full draft of the proposed Swiss measure notified as G/SPS/N/CHE/5, including access to the risk analysis and other scientific documents which substantiated the proposal. Switzerland assured Argentina that the scientific basis for the notified measure would be provided as soon as possible.
In October 2004, Switzerland stated that this issue was resolved as Argentina was free from triticale indica and therefore the measure did not apply to them. Argentina concurred that the issue was resolved.
