Sanitary and phytosanitary measure

On 3 May 2009 Syria banned all imports of "any meat or products or materials containing derivatives of pigs". Moreover, travelers flying to Syria are not allowed to bring in pets (unless accompanied with health certificates), animal products or prepared foodstuffs that contain animal products regardless of their origin. Both measures apply to all of Syria's trading partners.
Although this measure is likely to have been taken on the grounds of protecting the citizenry's health, the measure still discriminates against foreign producers of the affected products.
