Since 2008 Ukraine became the member of the World Trade Organization, and in December 2011 the 8th WTO Ministerial Conference approved Russia’s accession. The World Trade Organization defining the trade rules among its members limits in a certain way opportunities for implementation of national economic interests due to the restrictions in the range of the trade policy instruments that used to be at the disposal of national governments. At the same time in the WTO existing instruments are improved and new mechanisms and techniques are being created; their learning, understanding and use are important for effective implementation of the national economic interests and strengthening the competitive positions on the international markets. First of all, in conditions of tariff liberalization (as well as in times of crisis and uncertainty), the role of non-tariff regulation of foreign trade relations increases. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to analyze the non-tariff rules in force within the WTO system, as well as the problems and prospects of development of non-tariff regulation at the global level.
