Italian industry is very much geared towards foreign markets on an European and world scale. Its products are known and appreciated throughout the world; this is highlighted by the fact that 50% of its production is exported .
For some years now ANASTA has played an active role in promoting and assisting Italian industry in adapting to the new and different demands of the European market.
When European directives, which range from company liability to safety specifications of products, come into force, ANASTA is sometimes called upon to receive, interpret and enforce adhesion to these directives, providing its members with the necessary support and technical expertise.
The in-depth knowledge and great experience of Italian industries have been represented by ANASTA at international committees where definition of these new standards takes place.
