How do technical regulations impact your business in India?
Is your company producing chemicals in India? Are you importing chemical products to India? Let us know, if you are affected by technical regulations and how we can help to reduce related barriers to trade by answering the following three questions.
Product quality is important for human health, consumer safety, climate protection and the environment. Technical regulations help in ensuring that products meet certain standards. They have been increasing significantlyin India recently. Compliance with technical regulations is mandatory for products that are produced in India as well as for products imported from other countries.
One form of technical regulations are Quality Control Orders (QCOs), which prescribe mandatory certification requirements based on Indian Standards. Collecting information, product testing and certification, and possibly even changing production processes to ensure compliance with these technical regulations can be costly and complex. Foreign companies incur these costs often in the form of technical barriers to trade.
Within the framework of the Indo-German Working Group on Quality Infrastructure, the Global Project Quality Infrastructure (GPQI) of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), in cooperation with the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC) will work on the above mentioned topics.
The following survey is jointly conducted by the IGCC and GPQI to better understandcurrent market access challenges your company is facing and what support you require.
