By depositing the “Instrument of Acceptance” of its membership terms with Director-General Roberto Azevêdo on 31 October 2015, Kazakhstan activated the 30-day countdown to its WTO membership, which became effective on 30 November 2015.

Kazakhstan's Accession Package was approved by the Working Party members on 22 June and ultimately by the General Council on 27 July.
