ROMA TREATY, 1957
PROHIBITION OF
QUANTITATIVE RESTRICTIONS
BETWEEN MEMBER STATES
Article 28
Quantitative restrictions on imports and all
measures having equivalent effect shall be
prohibited between Member States.
Article 29
Quantitative restrictions on exports, and all
measures having equivalent effect, shall be
prohibited between Member States.
Article 30
The provisions of Articles 28 and 29 shall
not preclude prohibitions or restrictions on
imports, exports or goods in transit justified
on grounds of public morality, public policy
or public security; the protection of health
and life of humans, animals or plants; the
protection of national treasures possessing
artistic, historic or archaeological value; or
the protection of industrial and commercial
property. Such prohibitions or restrictions
shall not, however, constitute a means of
arbitrary discrimination or a disguised
restriction on trade between Member States.
