Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

Effective 20 July 2009, the province of Ontario introduced sales targets for various wines. Wines sold in the stores of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) below these thresholds can be de-listed, but the thresholds for Ontario wines are set at a substantially lower level than imported wines. "These net thresholds," according to a European Union report,* "can be considered as a possible barrier to trade."
