Have you signed up for the World Trade Organisation’s (WTO) electronic export alert tool – ePing?
ePing sends you notification every time a country notify changes to its export requirements for the products you are trading.
ePing is a free online web service that provides businesses and governments with up to date information on regulations in export markets around the world, including product requirements and standards.
ePing’s two key functions allow users to easily track regulations for different products or export markets by registering to receive customised email alerts, or to search manually to analyse existing regulations.
The system brings together notifications of changes to Australia’s trading partners’ Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) and Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) measures, which have been notified to the World Trade Organization (WTO).
If you have questions or concerns about a trading partner’s measures you should contact the relevant Australian Government agency:
- Department of Agriculture & Water Resources (DAWR): email@example.com;
- Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade (DFAT): firstname.lastname@example.org; and/or
- Department of Industry, Innovation & Science (DIIS): email@example.com
The Australian Government can work directly with the governments of trading partners or raise issues in the relevant WTO Committees to help address questions or concerns.
The WTO is currently updating ePing and wants your feedback on how it functions and ideas on new features.
