Member countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO) are required under the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT Agreement) to report to the WTO all proposed technical regulations that could affect trade with other Member countries. The WTO Secretariat distributes this information in the form of “notifications” to all Member countries. The chart below summarizes notifications from the WTO in English received and posted by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) during the past month. If you are interested in obtaining copies of any of these notifications, please contact who will try to obtain the text. [Note: Some notifications are only available in the official language(s) of the country publishing the notification. All dates are given as mm/dd/yyyy; National flags are not scaled for relative comparison.]
