Handbook on Product Standards and International Trade is a pioneering book extensively describing the nature of standard-setting processes in India and the key agencies involved with this task, greatly clarifying the scope of trade and market access opportunities in the country. India, one of the world’s foremost trading nations, parades a particularly complex regulatory landscape with diverse standard-setting bodies, regulators, accreditation and certification bodies, inspection agencies, as well as several state-level regulators.

What’s in this book:

Lucid contributions from experienced practitioners, policymakers and regulators with first-hand experience in formulating and advising on issues related to standards in international trade help disentangle the web of laws, regulations, operations, and functions of India’s standard setters in governmental, non-governmental, and industry contexts. The chapters describe how standards apply to crucial trade and regulatory aspects as the following:

  • conformity assessment practice and procedure
  • environmental, ethical, social, and safety issues
  • import bans and import licensing
  • certification and labelling measures
  • mutual recognition agreements
  • food safety, and
  • standardisation of the digital economy

Drafted in an easy-to-read style, with numerous tables, flowcharts, and figures illustrating step-by-step compliance procedures, this book also provides informative annexes to guide the reader to relevant agencies and identify their roles and responsibilities.

How this will help you:

A clear and succinct guide to the operations, functions, and compliance, and documentation requirements of India’s standard-setting and regulatory bodies across all sectors and products, this book will be highly appreciated by manufacturers, traders, and exporters operating in the Indian market or seeking to export to India. It will also prove to be a useful Handbook to policymakers, academics, and researchers interested in understanding the role of standard-setting bodies in the field of international trade.
