ePing: Alerts you on changing rules in international markets.

    ITC’s ePing is an online alert mechanism to help businesses stay informed about changes in sanitary and phytosanitary measures (SPS) and technical barriers to trade (TBT) in international markets.


    Each year, governments submit to the World Trade Orgazanition (WTO) more than 5,000 technical barriers to trade (TBT) and sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures. 

    How can producers, especially micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), navigate through all these notifications? 

    With ePing, those registered on this free online platform receive daily or weekly alerts of notifications on sectors and products relevant to their export markets. 

    Launched in 2016, ePing also includes additional features such as the national forum, a communication platform where subscribers can discuss these upcoming changes with other users and government officials.

    The platform is available in English, Spanish and French. Since April 2021, ePing is also accessible in Vietnamese.

    The project is a joint initiative of United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), ITC and the WTO.
