International certificates – Can be a problem


International standards can protect various things. It is good for one and can be a big problem for the other one. In my daily work as business developer in Ecuador I meet entrepreneurs, exporters and fabricants who have excellent products and have a huge problem to get an international certificate to export and expand their business. Why? Because the standards are made for the first world e.g. for the European Union. Your product can be excellent, clean and the best quality which one could use or consume without any doubts. But to get the certification you need as example to install a Sprinkler fire protection for 150.000 USD among others. If this not makes the certification impossible but it kicks the export far in the future.
We should think that the developing countries need time to become on the level of the first world.
