DEVELOPING INDICATORS TO ASSESS THE STRENGTH OF STANDARDS AND CONFORMANCE (S&C) INFRASTRUCTURE IN APEC

 

 

Developing stronger standards and conformance (S&C) infrastructure supports APEC’s trade facilitation agenda by reducing bilateral trade costs. This report aims to analyze the strength of S&C infrastructure in the region by surveying APEC member economies and conducting case studies on Australia, China, Japan, Peru, Singapore, and Viet Nam.

 

The findings show that APEC economies are in general active in international and regional S&C bodies. However, the level of involvement is higher among the developed economies. APEC’s overall alignment with international standards like ISO, IEC, and APMP is strong. Most economies are developing processes to create standards that adhere to future needs and also conducting outreach programs to increase the knowledge on S&C.

 

The case studies concluded that business uptake of S&C varies across firms and economies. Nevertheless, interviewees from all economies agreed there is a strong rationale to increase standards adoption, particularly for firms entering GVCs as they depend heavily on standardized goods and services. Many also noted the need to remain innovative and plan for future developments, especially in the areas of services, cybersecurity, and other internet technology.
