Introduction

 

In 1997, 20 products were identified as a priority for standards harmonisation in ASEAN by the AFTA Council.  In recognition of clause 2.4 of the WTO Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade, the harmonisation of the priority products was carried out based on 59 ISO, IEC and ITU International Standards. The harmonisation for the 20 priority products were completed in 2003.

To supplement this was the initiative in 1999 to harmonise standards on the electrical safety aspects of electrical products and on the subject of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).  71 Safety and 10 EMC were identified and all Member Countries had completed this harmonization of these identified standards in July 2004.

Basic Principles of Harmonisation

 

During this harmonisation exercise, the national standards bodies in ASEAN or similar bodies would need to adopt the International Standards, based on the requirements of ISO/IEC Guide 21, as their national standards.   In the event they do not adopt any of the identified International Standards as their national standards, they would then accept the direct use of these International Standards.
