ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to describe and analyze the emerging European rules and regulations concerning imports of fishing tackle that were being established as the result of the formation of the European Union.  These rules and regulations govern tariffs, standards, labeling requirements, and other non-tariff barriers.  Eastern Bloc tariff and non-tariff barriers also were described.  The report was based on interviews with government and key industry representatives during 1992 and 1993.  Distributors, wholesalers, and retailers were interviewed about the following markets:  Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Scotland, Ireland, England, Norway, Sweden, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland.  The study concluded that Europe will represent the largest and easiest opportunity for marketing outside the continental United States.   Results were formally presented to the American Fishing Tackle Manufacturers Association in November 1993.
