The ITI team conducts comprehensive research on access to world markets. This work results in identification of promising export directions, as well as existing restrictions and possible ways to overcome them.

Trade barriers are identified by analyzing tariff regulation, trade protection measures (anti-dumping, special protective and countervailing measures), requirements in the area of technical regulation, sanitary and phytosanitary control, customs procedures and other national or supranational trade regulation measures constituting restrictions for export supplies and financial burdens for exporters.

In order to assist foreign importing companies the ITI experts conduct studies on mandatory requirements and conformity assessment procedures applied to goods being imported on the basis of analysis of EAEU technical regulations, Russian technical regulations, mandatory national and interstate standards and documents of government agencies. Results of such studies provide the necessary level of awareness of technical barriers and SPS measures for participants of foreign economic activities.

The ITI team also assesses effectiveness of introduction of TBT measures (technical measures) for protection of national markets and studies the impact of TBT measures on the volume of international trade. On orders of the Russian companies the ITI experts conduct studies on effectiveness of introduction of mandatory verification of conformity of the goods, its impact on competition on commodity markets. The ITI experts participate in development of national and interstate standards in the area of conformity assessment on the basis of study of the best practices in this area.

It is important to note that ITI is engaged in development of a positioning strategy for a company, a group of companies or a project within the framework of the Eurasian integration. ITI provides expert support to the interested representatives of the public and private sector in the course of international negotiations on application of the trade protection measures, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, subsidies and technical regulation measures.
