This case analyzes the provisions in the Agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) regulations of the World Trade Organization (WTO) to protect human, animal and plant life. In case any member country violates the provisions in the SPS Agreement, then the matter can be taken up to the Dispute Settlement Body of the WTO. The step by step process involved in dispute settlement is explained with the help of the case wherein, India imposed a ban on import of poultry products from the US to control the occurrence of avian influenza in the country in February 2007.
