Export Alert! Service

This free web-based service provides U.S. industry with the opportunity to review and comment on proposed foreign technical regulations that can affect their businesses. Members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) are required under the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT Agreement) to report proposed technical regulations that may affect trade to the WTO Secretariat, who in turn distributes them to all WTO Members.

By registering for the Export Alert! service U.S. companies receive, via e-mail, notifications of drafts or changes to foreign regulations for a specific industry sector and/or country. The industry sectors are defined by the International Classification for Standards (ICS) designation developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Notifications of the proposed foreign regulation contain a description of the regulation, the country issuing the regulation, and a final date for comments. Copies of the full text are available upon request from:
