Learning objectives

Mutual Recognition Agreements are instruments that facilitate market access by reducing costs and time associated with mandatory product certification and testing as they provide for the mutual recognition between trading partners of mandatory test results and certificates for certain manufactured products.

This makes trade quicker, easier and cheaper, while maintaining a high level of safety.

The webinar will present the opportunities provided by these agreements for EU exporters of goods to US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Israel, Switzerland.
