Summary Table Statistics

  • Share of HS six-digit subheadings subject to ad valorem duties or AVEs greater

  • than three times the national average.

  • Share of HS six-digit bound subheadings not yet implemented in 2006.

  • Maximum tariff line level, ad valorem duty or AVE.

  • Number of distinct duty rates. Non-ad valorem duties are always treated as distinct

  • because AVE calculations would always yield distinct AVEs.

  • Standard deviation of tariff line duty rates divided by the simple tariff line level average

  • of all duty rates. Includes only ad valorem duties or AVEs.

  • Total number of Most-favored nation (MFN) applied tariff lines.


Part A1. Tariffs and imports: summary and duty ranges

  • Simple average of final bound duties excluding unbound tariff lines

  • Simple average of MFN applied duties

  • HS six-digit MFN tariff averages weighted with HS six-digit import flows

Part A1. Tariffs and imports: summary and duty ranges

  • For WTO Members, accession year is indicated.

  • Share of HS six-digit subheadings containing at least one bound tariff line.

  • The percentage share is also presented separately for non-agricultural (Non-AG) tariff lines.

  • Per cent of HS six-digit subheadings in the schedule of agricultural concession

  • covered by tariff quotas.

  • Per cent of HS six-digit subheadings in the schedule of agricultural concessions with

  • at least one tariff line subject to Special Safeguards (SSG).


Part A2. Tariffs and imports by product groups

For product groups by Multilateral trade negotiations (MTN) Categories:


Part B. Export to major trading partners and duties faced

For top six major export destinations:

  • Diversification

  • HS two-digit - number of HS chapters with trade flows after exclusion of

  • 5 % of smallest bilateral tariff line trade flows.

  • HS six-digit - number of HS subheadings with trade flows after exclusion

  • of 5 % of smallest bilateral tariff line trade flows.

  • Simple and weighted MFN averages based on tariff lines with imports.

  • Preferential margin

  • Trade-weighted average difference between the MFN duty and the most

  • advantageous preferential duty. Tariff lines where either MFN or preferential duties cannot be expressed in ad valorem terms have been excluded.


Technical annexes

  • Technical Papers

    • Tariff aggregation methods – what are the implications

    • Methodology for the estimation of non-ad valorem tariffs

  • Data Sources
