A representative of the State Customs Service of Turkmenistan took part in the international webinar on good regulatory practice (GRP) for improving sanitary and phytosanitary measures, which was held on May 10, 2022.
According to the press service of the State Customs Service of Turkmenistan, the webinar organized by the Asian Development Bank and the Standards and Trade Development Fund (STDF) of the World Trade Organization discussed how NPFs can promote safe trade and improve the development and implementation of SPS measures.

The NPFs can help ensure that SPS measures achieve their intended policy goals without exorbitant costs and creating unnecessary barriers to trade.
An overview of the practical tools and processes contained in the new STDF's nw Guide on using GRPs on the application of NPFs in the design, development and revision of SPS measures was presented, and the experience of the Philippines and Sri Lanka in the application of NPFs in SPS was demonstrated.
