 The notification procedure created by the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade : an instrument of market openness.
Enterprises are the driving forces in international trade. So that they can fully benefit from the growth in international trade, the tariff liberalisation undertaken must be accompanied by the removal of unjustified technical barriers. Differences between the technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures adopted by various countries can result in the creation of obstacles to international trade. The Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT Agreement) is the main international instrument adopted to date in the field of technical regulations. The Agreement aims to ensure that regulations, standards and testing and certification procedures do not create unnecessary obstacles to international trade.
