This policygraphic provides the critical issues and the policy proposals based on EMNES Policy Paper 007 with visual graphics
The objective of the policy paper is twofold. First, it analyses how non-tariff measures (NTMs) became more protectionist than tariffs.

Recent data shows that most of the NTMs deal with conformity assessment as well as rules of origin.
