The main focus of the International Technology Transfer section lies in the performance of Twinning projects in the field of quality infrastructure. Twinning is an EU instrument aimed at supporting newly joining member states as well as countries of the European Neighbourhood Policy in developing modern and efficient administrative structures. The provision of support in exchanging knowledge and experience with authorities of the EU member states helps partner countries to harmonise their legislation with that of the EU and to implement EU technical directives.

Further key aspects of our projects are the mutual recognition of the accreditation of conformity assessment bodies, the objective to integrate the partner states into the European and international trading system and to increase technical safety and reliability of products and services in countries of the EU and their neighbouring trading partners
