Formatted abstract
Food safety has become an important nontariff barrier to trade as quantitative barriers have been 'tariffied' and reduced in the Uruguay Round of the GATT. This is significant particularly in Japan where the government's food policy is considered by Japan's trading partners to be trade distortionary. The reasons for Japan's maintenance of strict standards and regulations regarding food and agriculture products is examined, as well as the implications for Australia as a major food and agriculture exporter to Japan. A conclusion of the thesis is that the concerns of consumers regarding food safety need to be taken into account by exporters in their advertising campaigns and in determining demand patterns for different foods.
