Description

This summary report presents the outcomes of the workshop, Facilitating Trade in Information and Communications Technologies through the Encouragement of Electronic Labeling Best Practices, held in August in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam. The workshop was a first step in seeking to improve regulatory coherence by fostering a move toward acceptance of best practices for e-labeling for ICT products and encouraging participation in the international standardization effort taking place in ISO/IEC.

The workshop brought together participants from APEC economies, which included regulators, representatives from standards agencies, and industry. The first day of the workshop was focused on information-sharing, while the second day of the workshop was focused on developing and drafting a consensus best practices document that can be used by economies interested in developing or updating an e-labeling policy in their economy.
