Kyrgyzstan gets 3 months to eliminate barriers to trade with EEU

The Government of Kyrgyzstan has to bring the provisions of the national legal acts in line with the law of the Eurasian Economic Union until October 1, 2018. The website of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) says.

Recall, Kazakhstan considered setting of a price floor for goods from EEU as a barrier to trade and appealed to the EEC. The commission’s Advisory Committee agreed with the opinion of Kazakhstan and made a conclusion that Kyrgyzstan’s application of a price floor for certain goods imported from the EEU countries was a sensitive issue.

To ensure fair competition, the EEC committee invited the Government of Kyrgyzstan to solve the problem before October 1.

In addition, at the meeting of the EEC, the parties also discussed the problem of the lack of mutual recognition by the EEU states of an electronic digital signature. Because of this, there are difficulties with the access of potential suppliers to participation in procurement in electronic format. The Council instructed the EEC Board by September 1, 2018 to approve the action plans that provide for mutual recognition of all digital signatures produced in accordance with the legislation of all EEU countries.
