Wto Agreement Standards
Most technical requirements and standards are adopted for the protection of human safety or human health. Many examples can be cited. National rules requiring motor vehicles to be equipped with seat belts to minimize injuries in the event of a road accident or for sockets to be manufactured to protect users from electric shocks fall into the first category. A common example of regulations to protect human health is the labelling of cigarettes to show that they are harmful to health. N. The standard-setting body takes into account, when continuing to process the standard, the notices received during the notice period. Notices received by standards bodies that have accepted this code of conduct must be responded as quickly as possible upon request. The answer explains why it is necessary to deviate from relevant international standards. G. In order to harmonize standards on as broad a basis as possible, the standards body plays a full role within its resources in the development by relevant international standards bodies of standards for which it has adopted or expects standards. In the context of the standardization of organizations within a member`s territory, participation in a given international standardization activity is, as far as possible, carried out by a delegation representing all standards bodies in the region that have adopted or are waiting to adopt standards for the purpose of international standardization.
