In order to estimate the effects of changing SPS barriers to trade on Washington State apples in China, India, Mexico and Taiwan, we started by characterizing the full export model. The SPS costs elasticities obtained from the export supply equations were used in the revenue simulation. Our results bring some promising information to Washington State apple producers. China is confirmed as an attractive market, regardless of SPS barriers to trade. Exports to Mexico and Taiwan may increase significantly if SPS barriers are reduced. Even though exports to India may decrease if SPS barriers are enforced, the loss may be insignificant
