Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports
In March 1997, the representative of the United States expressed concern that Honduras had not yet lifted its restrictions on imports of rough rice. The representative of Honduras assured the Committee that his authorities would intensify efforts to reach a rapid solution to the problem.
In July 2001, the representative of the United States introduced an update to the Secretariat document on specific trade concerns (G/SPS/GEN/204/Rev.1). The United States had examined the issues it had raised in the Committee to determine whether the issues had been resolved. This exercise had shown that the SPS Committee was a useful forum to address and resolve trade issues. The US document presented the US view on the status of the relevant issues, and the United States was prepared to discuss other Members' views on this status.
