This paper briefly examines the meaning of the precautionary principle in international law, and summarises the main trade liberalisation provisions in EC and WTO law before analysing and comparing the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice and the Appellate Body on the use of the precautionary principle by Community institutions, EC Member States and WTO Members. The author concludes by examining whether it is possible to identify a common, trade-related approach to the precautionary principle.
