(c) the least restrictive measure chosen where two or more alternative measures are reasonably available to achieve the political objectives concerned; and prevent, prevent, prevent, prevent: developing countries and LDCs that are willing to adopt the specific and differentiated provisions of the VDC treatment regime must meet the implementation disclosure requirements set out in the agreement. These notifications are part of the agreement. Developing countries cannot expect these flexibilities if they do not respect their part of the agreement. 4.4 Each member is based on a risk assessment based on appropriate selectivity criteria. These selectivity criteria may include, among other things, the harmonized system code, the nature and designation of goods, the country of origin, the country of origin, the value of the goods, the registration of distributor compliance and the type of means of transport. Each member establishes a national trade facilitation committee and/or designates an existing mechanism to facilitate internal coordination and implementation of the provisions of this agreement. It is estimated that it is in developing and least developed countries, mainly African countries, that trade costs could be significantly reduced. (c) the member immediately terminates or suspends the notification or guidelines when the circumstances leading to it are no longer present or when the amended circumstances may be treated less restrictively; And by some estimates, the average customs process includes 20-30 parts, 40 documents, 200 pieces of data (30 of which are repeated at least 30 times) and the handing over of keys from 60 to 70 percent of all data at least once. With the reduction of tariffs, the cost of complying with customs procedures in many cases exceeds the cost of the duties to be paid. 8. Each member endeavours to make available to the public any information on preliminary decisions which he considers to be of considerable interest to other interested parties, given the need to protect confidential business information. The second anniversary of the agreement is an excellent time to verify the level of ratification, notification of implementation and transparency of the AFA.
(iii) Members should also promote internal coordination between their trade and development agents, both in the capitals and in Geneva, in the implementation of this Agreement and technical assistance; The DSC establishes a number of transparency obligations with respect to the substantive provisions of the agreement with respect to (i) online descriptions of business procedures; (ii) contact points to answer questions; (iii) the operation of insulated windows; (iv) the use of customs officers; and v) contact points for the exchange of customs information. 1.2 Each Member ensures, to the extent that it is feasible and in accordance with its domestic law and legal system, that the new laws and regulations of general application relating to the transfer, release and release of goods, including goods in transit, are made public or made public as soon as possible before they come into force, in order to enable distributors and other interested parties to know them. In the two years since it came into force, 141 out of 164 countries have ratified the agreement, representing 86% of WTO membership (the TFA being applied on the basis of the most favoured nations). 12 of the other 22 countries are LDCs. Nine countries have not ratified the TFA and have not communicated the commitments of Categories A, B and C. This means that the level of development can have a direct impact on the complexity of legal systems and on countries` ability to assess what they have to do, prompting donors and development partners to assist in legal processes.
