This chapter focuses on the age-old classic market access barriers that prevent a product from even crossing the border (quotas, including quotas that allow zero importation) or that render it less competitive. It discusses the law on tariffs on goods; customs-related measures; quantitative restrictions; and other measures restricting market access (i.e. state-trading enterprises, technical barriers to trade, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and sectoral market access agreements).
