Deputy minister Kachka: Ukraine has done much for ACAA agreement at legislative level

Ukrinform
The Ukrainian authorities have made many decisions at legislative level concerning the Agreement on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of Industrial Products (ACAA), the so-called "industrial visa-free regime."

"Ukraine has done much to pass the relevant legislation [for "industrial visa-free regime"],” Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine Taras Kachka announced at the 3rd International Forum of Associations in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

At the same time, according to Kachka, now European companies which import goods from the EU to Ukraine ask the Ministry of Economic Development why they need to undergo similar procedures in Ukraine after they have already completed them in the European Union.

The Deputy Minister considers that the long-term encouragement of Ukraine on part of the European Commission related to synchronization of legislation under the Agreement on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of Industrial Products now creates some obstacles to common trade.

Later, Deputy Managing Director at the European External Action Service Luc Devigne noted that Brussels had not promised Kyiv an "industrial visa-free regime."

At the same time, he noted that the trade relations between Ukraine and the EU had already become successful even without the ACAA Agreement.

As reported, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed the law of Ukraine on amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine in connection with the adoption of the Law of Ukraine “On Standardization” which was passed by the Verkhovna Rada on September 20, 2019.

This law is one of the key to Ukraine's "industrial visa-free regime" with the EU.
