The aim of the study is to determine the nature of the concept of "harmonization" and the importance of technical harmonization policy for a particular country, the producers of goods and providers of services of which enter into international trade. This policy will define the main components of the technical regulation. The technical regulation system as a whole depends on the existing legislative framework and a number of institutions to implement policies that enable technical harmonization. The effectiveness of this policy depends on the information, the institutional component of the technical regulation, allowing the country to adapt to similar standards and normsthat are accepted in a particular group of countries, and increase the competitiveness of domestic producers of goods and services in world markets.

Prospects for further research  forsee the development of appropriate policies of technical regulations in Ukraine. It will allow to achieve a significant level of harmonization of similar policies which have bben taken as a basis in the European Union.
