AEM’s member companies operate and export globally. At times foreign governments try to inhibit the importation of machinery outside of legal norms or previously signed agreements. AEM works with member companies to identify non-tariff trade barriers and address these issues directly with foreign governments.


Identifying non-tariff trade barriers is a constant practice and AEM communicates these barriers to member companies throughout the year.


AEM’s DC office advocates for the removal of non-tariff trade barriers directly with foreign government delegations. Many times these actions are coordinated with member companies impacted by these actions.
