The WTO Information Technology Agreement (ITA) Committee is organizing a Workshop on non-tariff barriers (NTBs) affecting IT trade on May 7 in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Workshop is open to industry participation and you can register at http://registration.wto.org.
During the Workshop industry representatives will present on possible approaches to address NTBs for IT products, including electronic labelling, suppliers declaration of conformity, and harmonization of energy efficiency requirements. More details on the Workshop can be found at https://www.wto.org/english/tratop_e/inftec_e/workshopmay15_e/workshopmay15_e.htm.
The Workshop is an opportunity for industry to impact the direction of any potential workstream on NTBs that the 77 countries signatories to the ITA may agree to pursue.
