With the reduction of tariffs under the Doha Development Round (DDA) of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), most of the countries have been increasingly using NTBs as a major trade restrictive measure for denying market access to the export interest of other countries.
NTBs are trade barriers other than the tariff barriers and can take various forms. Broadly these can be categorized as Import Policy Barriers, Standards, Testing, Labeling and Certification requirements, Anti-dumping & Countervailing Measures, Export Subsidies and Domestic Support, Government procurement & Private Standards, etc. These measures are being imposed by the importing countries in the name of Quality, Social and Environment, Ethical Compliances Standards and many more. Further, implementation of Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation by the European Union is the latest addition to the basket of these barriers. Also, these country specific barriers are complemented by the importers/buyers with private standards, which, the importers project as business & market promotion tools.
