TECHNICAL BARRIERS TO TRADE (TBT)/ STANDARDIZATION, QUALITY ASSURANCE, ACCREDITATION AND METROLOGY (SQAM) EXPERT

Implementation of the Result 4 of the Trade Facilitation programme financed by the 11th European Development Fund (EDF) will require one TBT/SQAM Expert under the director supervision of the SPS Coordinator and the Director of Agriculture and Industry

COMESA recognizes that, technical standards & regulations and SPS measures constitute some of the outstanding unresolved NTBs in the region. Their impact ranges from restricting trade flows, to market access constraints, compounding trade costs and undermining the competitiveness of COMESA exporters and SMEs. Towards addressing the current challenges, COMESA, with support from the European Union, has designed a Programme to strengthen the capacities and delivery of COMESA Quality Infrastructure institutions in order to facilitate intra-regional and international trade.

The expert will support implementation of the TBT/SQAM activities under the Trade Facilitation Programme
