Kyrgyz Republic - Standards for Trade
Last published date:


In April 2004, the Parliament passed a technical regulation law, amended in 2009, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2019[1] which decreased government regulation. The national system previously functioned along Soviet standards requiring obligatory certification of 70 percent of all products. Approximately 50,000 official documents regulated security and quality of goods. Concerns about standards should be directed to the U.S. Embassy in Bishkek.

Testing, inspection, and certification

The Center for Standards and Metrology under the Ministry of Economy and Commerce of the Kyrgyz Republic is responsible for accreditation. Products that could possibly endanger human health must be certified. This list includes items such as alcohol, tobacco products, medical supplies and equipment, and other items. Conformity assessment is not required for goods that do not require product certification.

Publication of technical regulations

The Kyrgyz Center of National Standards and Metrology maintains most technical regulations and has regulations available for public access.

Use ePing to review proposed technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures

The ePing SPS&TBT platform (, or “ePing”, provides access to notifications made by World Trade Organization (WTO) Members under the Agreements on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) and Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), distributed by the WTO from January 16, 1995 to present. ePing is available to all stakeholders free of charge and does not require registration unless the user wishes to receive customized e-mail alerts. Use it to browse notifications on past as well as new draft and updated product regulations, food safety and animal and plant health standards and regulations, find information on trade concerns discussed in the WTO SPS and TBT Committees, locate information on SPS/TBT Enquiry Points and notification authorities, and to follow and review current and past notifications concerning regulatory actions on products, packaging, labeling, food safety and animal and plant health measures in markets of interest. Notify U.S., operated and maintained by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) since 2003 to distribute and provide access to notifications (and associated draft texts) made under the WTO TBT Agreement for US stakeholders, has reached its end of life. Per obligation under the TBT Agreement, each WTO Member operates a national TBT (and an SPS) Enquiry Point. National TBT Enquiry Points are authorized to accept comments and official communications from other national TBT Enquiry Points, which are NOT part of the WTO or the WTO Secretariat. All comment submissions from U.S. stakeholders, including businesses, trade associations, U.S domiciled standards development organizations and conformity assessment bodies, consumers, or U.S. government agencies on notifications to the WTO TBT Committee should be sent directly to the USA WTO TBT Inquiry Point. Refer to the comment guidance at for further information. This guidance is provided to assist U.S. stakeholders in the preparation and submission of comments in response to notifications of proposed foreign technical regulations and conformity assessment procedures.
