Following discussions among UNECE member States, the Executive Committee (EXCOM) recommended that the UNECE Committee on Trade should carry out studies on regulatory and procedural barriers to trade in countries with transition economies as part of its Aid for Trade Programme. These studies are based on a comprehensive evaluation methodology, which was developed by the UNECE to capture procedural and regulatory barriers to trade in goods with a view to: assisting countries in their efforts to achieve greater regional and global economic integration; informing donors as to where assistance might be required; and, strengthening policy discussions within the Committee on Trade and its subsidiary bodies on where additional work is required.
