WTO Regional Workshop on Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement with a focus on Transparency Issues for the Caribbean countries - Atelier régional de l'OMC sur les obstacles techniques au commerce en mettant l'accent sur les questions de transparence pour les pays des Caraïbes - Taller regional de la OMC sobre Obstáculos Técnicos al Comercio con un enfoque en temas de transparencia para los países del Caribe

The aim of the Regional Workshop on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Transparency Issues is to enhance the capacity of national Enquiry Points within the Caribbean Community on TBT transparency requirements as set out in the TBT Agreement, TBT Committee decisions and recommendations. In addition, the participants will be informed of the various tools that the WTO has developed for the facilitation of notification and information sharing such as the TBT NSS, TBT IMS and Eping. The CARICOM Regional Organization for Standards and Quality (CROSQ) is in the process of establishing a Regional Special Committee on Technical Barriers to Trade, Information Management Systems and Enquiry Points for which this regional workshop is well suited to provide the technical assistance required for its actualisation.
