Notes: 1. Scores have been assessed against fuller and more detailed versions of the policy questions than the short-form versions presented in the table above. Full versions are included in Appendix B.
2. The EU countries receive a partial existence score for formalized trade agreements based on the FLEGT VPAs which are mostly under negotiation; partial scores on enforcement alert systems also reflect the likelihood that equivalent measures will be created within VPAs and associated legality assurance systems. The US receives partial scores for both policy questions based on the arrangements included under FTAs and TPAs; in the case of the enforcement cooperation and alert measures included in the agreement with Peru, it was not possible to assess implementation.
