Ukraine is finalizing negotiations on the industrial visa-free agreement with the EU.
The ACAA agreement is a recognition of the equivalence of Ukraine’s technical regulation and conformity assessment system to the European one. Signing the industrial visa-free agreement would allow manufacturers of industrial products to obtain the necessary certificates in Ukraine instead of applying through an official representative – a resident of the EU. Initially, industrial visa-free implementation will be concluded for three sectors of industrial products: low-voltage electrical equipment, electromagnetic compatibility of equipment, and machinery. After successful EU recognition of the first of these sectors, this practice can be extended to other industries. According to the government website, the agreement between the EU and Ukraine is planned to be signed next year.
