Domestic Regulation, international standards, and technical barriers to trade by Janet McDonald( )

1 edition published in 2005 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There is growing concern over the use of domestic product regulations as technical barriers to trade on the one hand, and the WTO's incursion into domestic regulatory autonomy on the other. The TBTA seeks to balance competing interests acknowledging but disciplining Members' regulatory control over traded goods. The effectiveness of these disciplines is limited by the exclusion of many modern domestic regulations from the scope of the TBTA; the surest way to prevent abuse of process-based product specifications is to subject them to the TBTA's disciplines. The WTO dispute settlement tribunals have affirmed the importance of the use or adoption of international standards. While Members are still entitled to introduce their own measures in some circumstances, the emphasis on international standards raises the status of standard-setting bodies. Despite their important new role, the composition, accountability, and decision-making procedures have so far escaped the kind of civil society scrutiny to which WTO deliberations are now subject. To achieve the TBTA's harmonization objectives, the development, and use of international standards and their legal recognition within the WTO regime should be revised to safeguard legitimate non-trade regulatory objectives

The historical annual range use patterns of the Fourtymile caribou herd in Yukon by Janet McDonald( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Fortymile Caribou Herd (FMCH) (Rangifer tarandus granti) historically ranged both in Yukon and Alaska. The herd has undergone major population fluctuations and shifts in distribution in the last century. This project involved documenting written materials researched in the Yukon Archives and interviewing long-time residents of the former range to help in the reconstruction of range use in Yukon. In the late 1880s, it appears that while caribou were still quite abundant, mining activity forced hunters to travel far to get them. By the late 1890s, caribou were described as scarce or non-existent. In 1897, hunters estimated the herd at 10,000 to 20,000 caribou. It has been suggested that the herd recovered during the 1910s, reaching peak numbers in the mid-1920s. The data suggests the FMCH did not decline so dramatically in the late 1930s and early 1940s as previously described. Skoog mentions a definite gap in knowledge of the annual movements occurring in the latter half of the 1930s. The data recorded during this report suggests the herd shifted into the Yukon with records of large numbers of caribou migrating past Mayo and Pelly, and caribou wintering in the Dawson Range and near Whitehorse. In the 1940s and 1950s, there were many (thousands) of caribou; however the majority of reports came only from the Dawson and Sixtymile area and not farther south. While most of these observations were fall and winter reports, one report mentions most of the herd being in Canada for calving in 1959. By the 1960s and 1970s, reports of caribou were of only scattered bands in the Ladue and Sixtymile River areas. Caribou were not seen in Yukon after 1974. Starting in the mid 1980s, small numbers of caribou were wintering just across the Alaskan border in the upper Sixtymile area. The 22,000 caribou recorded in 1990 still only range in a small area of the Yukon. The herd's range has not increased noticeably since 1976 even though the herd has tripled in size"--ASTIS [online] bibliography
