New website ‘ePing’ provides updates on regulations affecting export markets
A free website ‘ePing’ is now available providing businesses and governments with up to date information on regulations affecting export markets around the world. ePing allows users to search all World Trade Organization (WTO) notifications relating to product requirements and standards. The website notifies users of non-tariff measures impacting Australian exporters, namely:
- Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) measures, which include import, inspection, certification, audit and testing requirements relating to food safety and
- Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) measures, which include requirements such as labeling, registration, product composition, testing and quality assurance (beyond SPS).
