Press Release - TIC Council consolidates relationship with the Asociación Colombiana de Organismos de Evaluación de la Conformidad (ASOCEC)
The TIC sector facilitates trade by enabling economic operators to test and certify their products with requirements of other world regions. Thereby, economic operators can export their products and participate in high – level value chains.
Conformity assessment provisions play an increasing role in international trade negotiations, as policymakers try to strike the right balance between protecting public goods and removing technical barriers to trade.
In this context, the TIC Council develops positions on bilateral trade agreements trying to promote a risk-based approach in selecting conformity assessment procedures.
