Malaysia’s WTO/TBT Enquiry Point
The World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT Agreement) obliges all member countries to maintain an Enquiry Point that is able to answer questions from interested parties and other WTO Members regarding technical regulations, standards and conformity assessment procedures. The TBT Agreement also requires that WTO Members notify the WTO of proposed technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures so interested parties can become acquainted with them and have an opportunity to submit written comments.
