There are no major non-tariff trade barriers on imports.  Technical standard barriers are applied to a small number of manufactured products, such as vehicles and refrigerators.  Vehicles imported into Nepal must qualify under the Euro I standard, and refrigerators must be chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gas-free.  Nepal does not allow the import of used items, the definition of which is often interpreted to include refurbished products (with the exception of refurbished aircrafts).
