World Tariff Profiles

World Tariff Profiles is an annual publication jointly published by the World Trade Organization (WTO), the International Trade Centre (ITC), and the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Available in English, French, and Spanish, this publication includes data on tariffs and non-tariff measures imposed by WTO members and other economies worldwide. More than 170 countries and customs territories are represented. Each volume also features a special topic. Recent topics include “Non-Tariff Measures: Estimating Analytical Indicators Using UNCTAD’s Trade Analysis Information Systems (TRAINS)” (2021), “Market Access for Medical Goods and COVID-19 Medical Supplies” (2020), and “Aligning Trade and Tariff Policies with Sustainable Development” (2019).

Each profile includes tariffs imposed by each economy on its imports, plus analysis of market access conditions faced by the economy regarding its major markets for exports. Tables are standardized, simplifying comparisons between countries/customs territories or between sectors. This standardization also enables comparison between bound and applied tariffs for WTO members.

World Tariff Profiles includes five main sections:

Summary Tables – summary tariff and trade statistics for all countries and territories for all products, plus a breakdown into agricultural and non-agricultural products. When applicable, calculations are based on a pre-aggregation to Harmonized System (HS) six-digit subheadings, resulting in standardization across countries and territories, increasing compatibility of comparisons across countries/territories.

Country/Territory Tariff Profiles – a page devoted to each country/territory, with statistics disaggregated by sector and duty range. In addition, this section includes information about market access conditions the country/territory faces in major export markets.
