Thailand's Membership in the WTO and GATT:
Thailand has been a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) since January 1, 1995, and a member of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) since November 20, 1986. This international involvement underscores Thailand's commitment to adhering to global trade and safety standards.

Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) under the Ministry of Industry:
The Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI), Thailand's national standards body, is a member of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). It plays a crucial role in enhancing the competitiveness of Thai industries in the global market while ensuring environmental protection and consumer safety. TISI is actively involved in developing national standards and product certifications and cooperates with international, regional, and foreign standards organizations. In Southeast Asia, TISI is part of the ASEAN Consultative Committee on Standards and Quality (ACCSQ) and participates in the Standards and Conformance Subcommittee (SCSC) of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), representing Thailand at the Pacific Area Standards Congress (PASC).

Technology Transfer of the FIRE EXTINGUISHING BALL:
The inventor transferred the technology of the patented FIRE EXTINGUISHING BALL under the Intellectual Property Rights Agreement (the "TRIPS Agreement") to the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Agreement. This aims to protect human health and the environment and ensures that technical regulations and standards are fair and transparent as endorsed by the World Trade Organization (WTO), which strongly encourages its members to adopt international standards to facilitate trade.

Development of Industrial Product Standards Using FIRE EXTINGUISHING BALL Technology:
The TISI developed the industrial product standard TIS.3413-2565 for the FIRE EXTINGUISHING BALL, aligning it with the existing good practices in Annex 3 of the WTO TBT Agreement. These standards are part of voluntary fire safety standards meant to prevent deceptive practices and maintain national security, human health, and environmental protection. The FIRE EXTINGUISHING BALL standard (TIS.3413-2565) was announced on August 17, 2022, and implemented as law in October 2022.

Following the governmental
announcement, ELIDE FIRE BALL Pro Co., Ltd., the innovator of the FIRE EXTINGUISHING BALL technology, has been developing and producing the automatic fire extinguishing balls, which have been legally enforced as an industrial standard. The company ensures compliance with TIS.3413-2565, facilitating inspections, testing, and certification to uphold fire safety standards.

Engagements and Memberships
The product's journey from a novel idea to a globally recognized safety device involves collaborations with various standard-setting organizations. The Technology Partnerships Office (TPO) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) plays a pivotal role in this, facilitating the integration of new technologies like the ELIDE FIRE® into established safety frameworks. The inventor's participation in these forums ensures that the product is not only innovative but also meets international safety expectations.
