Sample Summary Table
Sample Country Table
Calendar year or start of fiscal year Share of Harmonized System (HS) six-digit subheadings containing at least one bound tariff line. Simple average of the ad valorem or ad valorem equivalent (AVE) HS six-digit duty averages. Share of duty-free HS six-digit subheadings in the total number of subheadings in the product group. Share of HS six-digit subheadings subject to non-ad valorem duties. Share of HS six-digit subheadings subject to ad valorem duties or AVEs greater than 15%. 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 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. Summary Table Statistics
Simple average of MFN applied duties Simple average of final bound duties excluding unbound tariff lines 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). WTO Member since1995 Binding coverage:Total 97.0 Non-Ag 96.5 Ag: Tariff quotas (in %) 1.2 Ag: Special safeguards (in % ) 1.2
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.
