Panama Standards: Technical Regulations

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 6:24 am

In general, the technical regulations are established in accordance with international guidelines and are applied in the same way to both domestic products and imports.

Imported products must also comply with the mandatory technical regulations of the country of origin

Panama replaced COPANIT in 2006 with the Dirección General de Normas y Tecnología Industrial (Directorate-General of Standards and Industrial Technology – DGNTI), part of the MTI, is the only national entity responsible for informing about technical regulatory changes.
