Implementing EU directives in the Georgian market of electrical and electronic products
EU approximation is a central tenant of the Georgian government’s agenda. Core to this legislative agenda is regulation that approximates many EU directives. One of final goal of this implementation process is reducing the share of non-conforming electrical and electronic products into the domestic market. The project is a part of the DCFTA (Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area) agreement between Georgia and EU signed in 2014. This is aimed at raising standards of local production, reducing trade barriers, and opening extra markets for domestic manufacturers.
Georgia’s electrical and electronic market’s analysis has identified several important issues:
- Georgia is not ready to fully integrate European directives in local electrical and electronic product markets;
- It is necessary to upgrade infrastructure and conduct awareness raising activities among stakeholders;
- Most of the burden of the introduction of European directives will be distributed on manufacturers, not importers;
- Georgian consumers are willing to pay high prices for greater security in products.
