WTO/TBT Enquiry Point

In accordance to article 10.7 of TBT agreement all WTO members  are required to be as transparent as possible on issues relating to standards, technical regulations and procedures of assessing the conformity of goods and services to relevant standards. Members are therefore to notify WTO secretariat, indicating the standards and technical regulations being prepared or in the process of adoption.   

 

It is in this scope that country members are required to set up an Enquiry Point to handle information on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT).
The Rwanda Standards Board (RSB) has been designated as the WTO/TBT National Enquiry Point, to ensure that manufacturers, importers and exporters get the latest information on standards, technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures available in their target market.
