Since Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan formed a Customs Union, they adopted a law on Technical Regulation Law and worked out sets of new common Technical Regulations covering most products that are imported in the countries of the Customs Union. These Regulations, some of them already in force, some to come into force soon, have a serious impact on foreign trade. Exporters are now facing many issues, the answers to which, not so readily available elsewhere, will be provided at the webinar.
