What Is A Mutual Recognition Agreement

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:40 am

However, European Commission trade negotiators recently rejected mutual recognition of the compliance assessment by UK testing laboratories. Trade agreements are trade agreements designed to facilitate market access and promote greater international harmonization of compliance standards while protecting consumer safety. The EU internal market is the most comprehensive version of mutual recognition between trading partners. According to the Dijon Cassis principle, a product that can be legally sold in one Member State can be legally sold in any other Member State, even if the rules are not harmonised. Mutual recognition agreements/agreements (MRAs) for compliance assessment are agreements between governments to facilitate trade in telecommunications equipment. MRA establish procedures for contracting parties to recognize the appropriate compliance assessment bodies (CABs – such as test laboratories or certification bodies) and to accept the results of the compliance assessment of these CABs for regulatory purposes. Note: In order to facilitate the recognition of accredited reports and certificates, the membership accreditation mark is listed below. Please click below for the corresponding MRA offers. The Johnson government has moved away from these approaches. In its proposal for a comprehensive free trade agreement with the EU, the UK proposes an agreement on mutual recognition of compliance assessment that is “consistent” with the provisions of the EU agreement with Canada. A separate agreement on the certification of marine equipment is also proposed as part of the agreement between the EU and the United States.

CEPs are usually concluded with candidate countries with which the EU has association agreements (see our presentation on association agreements) and are a step in the accession process. The aim of the EPCA is to bring the technical rules of a candidate country in line with those of the EU in terms of preparation for EU membership. This type of MRA is by nature temporary, as it disappears when the country joins the EU internal market. Although there has been little progress in accession negotiations, Turkey has gradually expanded its legislation on EU legislation to remove technical barriers. The results of THE CAB tests notified by Turkey are mutually recognised in the EU (and vice versa). Parties to an MRA do not need to change their technical rules and that is why the UK government is now proposing MRA for compliance assessment as part of its new trade agreements. However, recent free trade agreements indicate a change in approach and acceptance of “traditional” MMAs. For example, Article 4.6 and Article 7.21, paragraph 4, of the EU-Korea Free Trade Agreement provide for the negotiation of mutual recognition of the assessment of the compliance of goods and services.

The MRA with Israel is an agreement on the evaluation of compliance and acceptance of industrial products (ACAA). It is a specific type of MRI based on the alignment of the legal system and infrastructure of the country concerned with that of the EU.
