WTO Enquiry Point

The National Board of Trade has a role as a contact/enquiry point for businesses and citizens, both for problemsolving and for information in different areas.

Both outside the EU and within the internal market, the National Board of Trade acts as a kind of "Ombudsman" for businesses and citizens who would like to submit a complaint about existing or potential trade barriers. The National Board of Trade analyses all complaints and works out the most efficient measures to address the problems raised. The cases are sometimes referred to the government for further action or deliberation.

The National Board of Trade is responsible in Sweden for the EU and WTO information and notification procedures for proposals for new national technical regulations.

Additionally, the National Board of Trade is the Swedish contact/enquiry point for questions with regard to the implementation and application in Sweden of the WTO agreements in:

  • Trade in Services (GATS)
  • Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS)
  • Pre-shipment Inspection
  • Technical Barriers to Trade
  • Sanitary and Phytosanitary Regulations

    Finally, the National Board of Trade is the Swedish contact/enquiry point in a number of free trade agreements.
  • Within its sphere of competence, the National Board of Trade provides swift and impartial information on the rules and procedures of the EU, the WTO, and other relevant sources. This information is provided in both oral and written form.

    All EU regulations, directives and decisions, as well as proposals and reports from the European Commission and judgements from the Court of Justice, are provided upon request.
