Product requirements worldwide – the ePing system
The WTO’s ePing system consolidates all product requirements of WTO members, which can be accessed free of charge by manufacturers and retailers for each market
In today’s age, almost all markets around the world are covered with their own or overlapping regulations. How is it still possible not to lose track of the large number of regulations and standards?
The World Trade Organization (WTO), the United Nations Department for Economic and Social Affairs UNDESA and the International Trade Center ITC, which jointly developed and currently operate the ePing system, are providing a remedy.
Based on the 1994 WTO Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade, WTO members are obliged to notify other member states of new regulations in advance and to enable them to comment on the specific regulation. The ePing platform facilitates this through the notification and comment functions. The notifications, which according to one’s needs, can also be filtered by markets and product categories, are categorized according to technical trade barriers (TBT) and sanitary and phytosanitary measures (SPS).
Due to the constantly increasing number of new regulations, the ePing system fulfills an important clarity function and thus contributes significantly to globalization.
