WTO enquiry point: how we support you
All WTO Member States are required to establish an enquiry point for matters concerning TBT (Committee on Technical Barriers to Trade) and SPS (Committee on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures).
With the Ordinance of 17 June 1996 on the Notification of Technical Regulations and Standards and the Duties of the Swiss Association for Standardisation (Notification Ordinance – NO), SECO tasked the SNV with establishing and running this enquiry point.
The Swiss information center for technical rules (switec) was established for this purpose.
The switec team is on hand to provide you with support, advice and a range of services, including:
- Answering general questions about technical standards and regulations
- Providing information about inspection and certification services, compliance with EU regulations and CE labelling, and putting you in touch with the right points of contact in Switzerland and abroad, including government offices and associations
- Conducting searches for all applicable standards and regulations for any product around the world (researching tariffs)
More information is available on the SECO import platform.
The switec team is standing by to assist you. Simply submit your query using the contact form provided and we will respond as soon as possible.
