IIA Mapping Project The IIA Mapping Project is a cooperative initiative between UNCTAD and universities around the world to represent the content of IIAs. The resulting database serves as a tool to understand trends in the development of the IIA, assess the prevalence of different policy approaches and identify examples of contracts. The “Mapping of IIA Content” allows you to browse the results of previous projects (the page will be updated regularly when the new results are updated). Please cite as: UNCTAD, Mapping of IIA Content, available under investmentpolicy.unctad.org/international-investment-agreements/iia-mapping For more information: Mapping Project page Project description & Methodological document The CEMAC agreements contain two articles on the harmonization of technical and health regulations, standards and conformity assessments. However, the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) is not mentioned, although it calls for the removal of all measures that have a negative impact on trade between the parties. Of the CEMAC countries, only Cameroon has a sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) information service that is not operational due to lack of internet access and therefore needs assistance for capacity building. In addition, sanitary or phytosanitary measures have not been the subject of notifications to the WTO, with the exception of the selection of sanitary import measures in force since 2006. In 2011, CEMAC countries recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding establishing the Central African Sub-Regional Metrology Organization (CEMACMET) to promote metrology and related activities to facilitate trade. Each Party shall grant nationals or companies of the other Party the right of access to their courts, under conditions no less favourable than those which it grants, in similar situations, to their own nationals, nationals or companies of a third country, on the basis of the most favourable treatment; Courts and administrative agencies, as well as all other bodies that exercise decision-making power and the right to employ persons of their choice who are otherwise qualified under the applicable laws and regulations of the Forum to assert rights and enforce rights relating to their investments. The IIA Mapping Project is a collaborative initiative between UNCTAD and universities around the world to map the content of IIAs. The resulting database serves as a tool to understand trends in the development of the IIA, assess the prevalence of different policy approaches and identify examples of contracts.
