  • Quantitative import restrictions (quotas) and other measures with equivalent effect (quantitative restrictions, surveillance systems, administrative measures and requirements)
  • Technical barriers to trade (technical regulations, administrative and other non-compulsory provisions)
  • Export restrictions 
  • Government subsidies
  • Complicated procedures for the registration of a new business
  • Dumped and subsidized imports
  • Price compensation measures
