The European Union (EU) would like to thank the Chinese authorities for their written answer of 10 November 2015 to EU comments on G/TBT/N/CHN/1094, G/TBT/N/CHN/1095 and G/TBT/N/CHN/1096 of 6 October 2015.
The EU would also like to thank the Chinese authorities for the constructive exchange held on the margins of the TBT Committee on 10 March in Geneva. The EU appreciates the announcement conveyed then by the Chinese authorities that Total Volatile Organic Compound (TVOC) requirements will be applied on a voluntary basis instead of on a mandatory basis. The EU would like to seek confirmation of this point, request a number of related clarifications, and convey additional points.
