Preventing International Trade Barriers

WTO
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

 

 In your business, you would certainly anticipate problems in order to avoid them. The same goes for regulatory barriers: if you export a product, you probably prefer to be alerted early about of new technical requirements applying to that product. In the EU, the internal market ensures that products move freely. But what if you are exporting outside the EU, in third countries?

The WTO Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade is here to help you.
