  • Ecuador: Company Perspectives - An ITC Series on Non-Tariff Measures (in Spanish)

    One in five Ecuadorian exporters face challenges with non-tariff measures (NTMs).

    Major challenges for Ecuadorian exports are conformity assessments, rules of origin, and export clearance procedures. Three-quarters of the challenges relate to regulations of destination countries, the other 25% relate to regulations in Ecuador itself.

    Even though exporters face difficulties linked to regulations, they do not question the validity of regulations but their implementation. Eighty-five per cent of NTM-related obstacles are due to procedures at national institutions, such as delays and numerous or excessive documentation.

    The report recommends for Ecuador to improve its trade facilitation and efficiency in export-related procedures.
