LDCs seek strengthened mandate for Committee on Rules of Origin

Least developed country (LDC) members called for a decision at the WTO’s upcoming Ministerial Conference in June to strengthen the mandate of the Committee on Rules of Origin (CRO) by setting clearer obligations for preference-granting members to monitor the impact of their rules of origin on LDC imports and to simplify their qualifying requirements. At a meeting of the CRO on 5 March, members also discussed a joint proposal for enhancing transparency in non-preferential rules of origin.
