A brief overview of the Reference Centres Programme can be found in this leaflet. In 2012, the Secretariat established or upgraded nine reference centres. Details of these reference centres can be found here.
Countries can also use the RC as their enquiry points to fulfil notification requirements under the Agreements on SPS, Technical Barriers to Trade and GATS as well as to participate to eTraining sessions.
In order to strenghten the Reference Centres Programme and to reinforce its role in the repositioning of the Institute for Training and Technical Cooperation, a New Strategy has been established and implemented.
The list of contacts for the reference centres is available here.
Any other information related to the reference centres, can be obtained by contacting us at WTOReferenceCenters@wto.org.
