Over the past twenty years or so several global and regional agreements have emerged to address the problems associated with international shipments of hazardous substances. Such agreements are found in three main areas covering three categories of goods: hazardous wastes (Basel convention, Bamako convention, and a number of regional agreements), certain chemicals (Rotterdam Convention), and genetically modified organisms (Cartagena Protocol). .

This ground-breaking study is the first book to take a comprehensive approach to the subject of transboundary shipments of hazardous substances and the instruments employed for regulating such shipments. It fully explains which types of trade regulating instruments are employed by which agreements, and then goes on to evaluate the pros and cons of these instruments with respect to their compatibility with international legal norms, especially WTO law. For the first time in any book, the various international legal regimes (hazardous waste, hazardous chemicals, and biosafety) are compared, based on such criteria as the following:
effectiveness of the regulatory instruments;
ability to protect the environment and/or human health;
ability to accommodate new information; and
where they place effective decision-making ability and authority.
