ISO-sponsored Regional Technical Assistance workshop: “Standardization in support of public policies” - Atelier régional d'assistance technique parrainé par ISO : «La normalisation à l'appui des politiques publiques" - Taller Regional de Asistencia técnica patrocinada par la ISO : "La normalización en apoyo de las políticas públicas

This workshop will provide training to nine Members (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay) in the Latin America region on standards and TBT matters. It will include representatives of regulators and national standards bodies. ISO will cover the costs of organization, travel and accommodation of all participants (two per country). The only cost for WTO is travel and DSA for one staff member.


The objectives of the workshop include promoting cooperation between standards bodies and regulators by addressing issues of good regulatory practices and good practices in standards development, including through enhancing domestic coordination. Another objective is to promote the use of international standards as a basis for regulations and conformity assessment schemes. These are key challenges for developing Members in the implementation of the TBT Agreement, and the presence of WTO will deliver hands on training to better help Members in the region to use international standards and coordinate domestically in the development of standards and regulations.
