Information submitted should relate to one or more of the following categories of foreign trade barriers:

  1. Import policies (e.g., tariffs and other import charges,quantitative restrictions, import licensing, and customs barriers);
  2. Standards, testing, labeling, and certification;
  3. Government procurement (e.g., "buy national'' policies and closed bidding);
  4. Export subsidies (e.g., export financing on preferential terms and agricultural export subsidies that displace U.S. exports in third country markets);
  5. Lack of intellectual property protection (e.g., inadequate patent, copyright, and trademark regimes);
  6. Services barriers;
  7. Investment barriers;
  8. Anticompetitive practices with trade effects tolerated by foreign governments;
  9. Trade restrictions affecting electronic commerce; and
  10. Other barriers (including bribery and corruption).
Public comments must be submitted to the Trade Policy Staff Committee by November 8, 2007.
