This book evaluates the evolution of regulatory policy in advanced countries and discusses how, due to globalization, policy changes in one country have a knock-on effect in others. Separated in two parts, the first half focuses on policy in developed countries and regulatory diffusion from Europe to Asia. The second part looks at the business impact of policy developments in a number of Southeast Asian countries. Key chapters discuss Thailand's response to EU chemical regulations, the diffusion of private food standards, and the effect of chemical safety standards in Malaysia and Vietnam. These contributions are written by leading scholars in the field and the book is likely to be of interest to students, researchers and policy makers concerned with regulation changes in East Asia.

"Regulations and International Trade: New Sustainability Challenges for East Asia is an inspiring book that deepens our understanding of the firm-level adjustment processes in East Asia in response to high-income countries' adoption of product-related environmental and health policies. Its clear and detailed account of the need for capacity building to pave the way for the external effects of product-related environmental and health policies to unfold is one of its major contributions, enriching academic research." (Katja Biedenkopf, The Developing Economies, Vol. 56 (3), September, 2018)
