International Trade

Sustainability and Traceability

SSA has an unsurpassed understanding of the procedures and provisions that govern short supply requests (also known as commercial availability provisions) under FTAs.  Our expertise enables us to identify the key aspects and nuances that significantly influence the outcome of short supply consultations required by FTA provisions. We also have a strong working relationship with trade associations, government officials, and business leaders that are important stakeholders in short supply processes.


SSA assists our clients in creating and filing short supply requests, conducting the analyses, and engaging with key government and industry stakeholders.  We use our unique knowledge and ability to mitigate potential obstacles, as well as work out solutions that lead to successful results.
