Ozone Protection and WTO Law
This chapter focuses on the legal relationship, and possible conflicts of norms, between the international ozone regime and WTO law. After a brief analysis of the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, the Montreal Protocol, its amendments, and adjustments, it examines the possible conflicts of norms that may stem from the adoption of trade measures against parties not complying with the ozone regime, and conflicts with WTO law that may arise from the imposition of trade restrictions vis-à-vis states that are not party to the ozone regime. The chapter concludes that from the viewpoint of the international ozone protection regime, the often cited ‘chilling effect’ of the WTO treaty and the need to revise WTO law appear to be overstated.
