lSO (International Organization for Standardization) and lEC (International Electrotechnical
Commission) are non-governmental organizations that form a specialized system for worldwide standardizaton. National bodies that are
members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established by the respective
organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees
collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other
international organizations, governmental and
non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC,
also take part in the work.
their trade in goods and services. The WTO also
administers an agreement concerning the traderelated aspects of intellectual property rights. The
WTO serves as the platform in which trade
relations among countries evolve through collective debate, negotiation and adjudication. Its four
main responsibilities include: administering and
implementing the multilateral and plurilateral trade
agreements which together make up the WTO;
acting as a forum for multilateral trade
negotiations; resolving trade disputes between
member governments and cooperating with
other international institutions involved in global
economic policy making.
WTO (World Trade Organization) is the legal and
institutional foundation of the multilateral trading
system. It provides contractual obligations determining how governments frame and implement
domestic trade legislation and regulations for
The purpose of this Directory is to give systematized information on standardizing bodies
having accepted the WTO TBT Code of Good

Foreword
The World Trade Organization was established
on 1 January 1995. As of 31 August 2007, there
were 151 Members (central governments). The
Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade is one
of the 29 individual legal texts of the WTO
Agreement which obliges Members to ensure
that technical regulations, voluntary standards
and conformity assessment procedures do not
create unnecessary obstacles to trade. Annex 3
of the TBT Agreement is the Code of Good
Practice for the Preparation, Adoption and
Application of Standards. In accepting the TBT
Agreement, WTO Members agree to ensure that
their central government standardizing bodies
accept and comply with this Code of Good
Practice and agree also to take reasonable
measures to ensure that local government, nongovernmental and regional standardizing bodies
do the same (for the definition of “standardizing
bodies” see ISO/IEC Guide 2). The Code is
therefore open to acceptance by all such bodies.
The TBT Agreement recognizes the important
contribution that international standards and
conformity assessment systems can make to
improving efficiency of production and facilitating
international trade. Where international
standards exist or their completion is imminent,
therefore, the Code of Good Practice says that
standardizing bodies should use them,
WTO TBT Standards Code Directory 2007, Update 2007-08-31
or the relevant parts of them, as a basis for
standards they develop. It also aims at the
harmonization of standards on as wide a basis
as possible, encouraging all standardizing
bodies to play as full a part as resources allow in
the preparation of international standards by the
relevant international bodies, including the ISO
and IEC.
In the interest of transparency, the Code
requires that standardizing bodies that have
accepted its terms notify this fact to the joint
ISO/IEC Information Centre located at the ISO
Central Secretariat in Geneva, either directly or
through the relevant national/international
member of ISONET. At least once every six
months, standardizing bodies must publish their
work programmes and also notify the existence
of their work programmes to the ISO/IEC
Information Centre. Other important provisions
relate to the preparation, adoption and
application of standards.
The present Directory lists all standardizing
bodies that had notified acceptance of the WTO
TBT Code of Good Practice for the Preparation,
Adoption and Application of Standards by
31 August 2007. The Directory also contains the
addresses of these standardizing bodies and
information related to the availability of their
work programmes.

standards development and submit candidate NCS's to SCC for approval.
The following four SDOs are accredited by SCC: Bureau de normalisation
du Quebec (BNQ), Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB), CSA
International, Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada (ULC).
Publication
Work programmes of the accredited SDOs are available directly from
each organization. Information on the accredited SDOs on whose behalf
SCC notifies its acceptance of the Code of Good Practice for the
Preparation, Adoption and Application of Standards is available on the
SCC homepage at: www.scc.ca/about/sdoe.html. Those unable to access
the information electronically, and those having specific questions about
the SDOs may request information from the WTO TBT Enquiry Point for
