TBT (Technical barriers to trade): “Technical requirements exist in all sectors of the economy and have an impact on most products that we buy. The labelling of the food that we eat, the safety of toys that our children play with, the technical specifications of our cars or the safety and energy efficiency of our home appliances are all, to a certain degree, influenced by such requirements.”
