Tbt Agreement Annex 1
15.5 The annexes to this agreement are an integral part of this agreement. 6.3 Members are encouraged to be willing, at the request of other members, to enter into negotiations for mutual recognition agreements on the results of mutual compliance assessment procedures. Members may require these agreements to meet the criteria set out in paragraph 1 and to satisfy each other`s opportunities to facilitate trade in the products concerned. 10.7 When a member has reached an agreement with another country or country on issues related to technical regulations, standards or compliance assessment procedures that could have a significant impact on trade, at least one member of the agreement informs the other members, through the secretariat, of the food products covered by the agreement and a brief description of the agreement. Concerned members are invited to consult with other members on request to conclude similar agreements or to organize their participation in these agreements. 3. Citizens of the parties to the dispute cannot be heard by a group of technical experts without the common agreement of the parties to the dispute, unless the panel considers that the need for scientific expertise cannot be met by other means. Government officials of the parties to the dispute are not allowed to sit in a panel of technical experts. Members of technical expert groups perform their individual duties and are not representatives of the government or representatives of an organization. Governments or organizations therefore do not instruct them on the issues in front of a group of technical experts. The work programme contains, for each standard in accordance with the ISONET rules, the classification relevant to the object, the stage reached during the development of standardization and references to all international standards that are used as a basis.
At the latest at the time of the publication of its work programme, the standard-setting body informs the ISO/CIS information centre in Geneva that this exists. The definition of ISO/CIS 2 is not consistent in itself, but is based on what is called the modular system. 12.1 Members of this agreement are treated differently and more favourably by the following provisions, as well as by other relevant articles.
