UNECE undertakes demand-driven national studies of regulatory and procedural barriers to trade, with a view to helping countries achieve greater regional and global economic integration; informing donors as to where assistance might be required, and supporting policy discussions within the Steering Committee on Trade Capacity and Standards and its subsidiary bodies on where additional work is required. This study summarizes the key findings and focuses on Georgia.



Regulatory and standardization policies

The Government of Georgia sees the development of the national system of standardization, conformity assessment, metrology and accreditation as an important element in increasing the contribution of trade to economic development and improving the competitiveness of Georgian enterprises. Reform measures in this area entered a new phase in 2010, which marked the launching of negotiations with the EU over the terms of the Association Agreement, and are geared towards achieving the twin objective of approximating national legislation with the EU Directives and consolidating the required institutional capacity. Given the broad range of horizontal and sectoral areas involved, the Government opted for a gradual approach that sequences legislative approximation and associated reforms across several years until 2027.
