Foreword

National standards bodies (NSBs) and trade promotion organizations (TPOs) have specific and important roles to play — NSBs as developers of national standards and representatives of their country in international and regional standardization organizations, TPOs as the source of much needed foreign market information, and facilitators of export trade. In most developing countries, the NSB is the national enquiry point as required by the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Technical barriers to trade (TBT), and may also be a provider of conformity assessment services. In many countries, little or no formal cooperation existed in the past between NSBs and TPOs.
