What are the WTO Agreements on TBT and SPS and what are the main differences between these agreements?

The World Trade Organization (WTO) was established in 1995 after the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations, which took place from 1986 to 1994. Its overriding objective is to help trade to flow smoothly, freely, fairly and predictably. It does this, inter alia, by administering trade agreements and rules, monitoring Members’ trade policies, settling trade disputes and assisting developing countries on trade policy issues through technical assistance and training programmes
