Guide: Facilitating transition to European standards in the EaP countries

The purpose of the guide ”Facilitating transition to European standards in the EaP countries“ is to provide useful recommendations that will facilitate implementation of European standards in Eastern Partnership countries, especially in Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine, and will contribute to implementation of the European integration agenda by these three countries.

The recommendations are based on the analysis of the evolution of the standardization sector in Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia. This Guide is taken into consideration the constraints faced by these countries in the process of implementation of European standards.

Implementation of European standards is carried out by several actors, each with its role in this process. It is important that the efforts of all stakeholders (SMEs, regulatory authorities, quality infrastructure bodies, civil society and academia) are mutually correlated and mutually reinforced. For these reasons, the Guide provides recommendations for each category of stakeholders and is structured so that it is easy to use by each representative of them. At the same time, the Guide provides additional recommendations specific to the agri-food, construction and energy efficiency sectors.

The guide "Facilitating transition to European standards in the EaP countries" is conducted within the project "Enhancing the role of Civil Society and SMEs from Eastern Partnership Countries in the implementation of European standards" implemented by Center for Innovation and Policies in Moldova (CIPM), Georgia’s Reforms Associates (GRASS) and Strategic and Security Studies Group in Kyiv, Ukraine.
