Transnational private regulation has attracted considerable attention from academics in recent years. Scholars from distinct disciplinary backgrounds, including sociology, political economy, international relations and law, have studied the emergence, governance and impact of this phenomenon. This chapter builds on the fast-growing body of research about transnational private regulation to discuss the characteristics of this form of regulation and classify the mechanisms that can be used to enforce its standards. Subsequently, the chapter explores the actual and potential relationships between these enforcement mechanisms.
