WTO Launches New Trade Policy Resource

by Ulrika Lomas, Tax-News.com, Brussels

19 December 2011


The World Trade Organization (WTO) has announced the launch of a newly-developed application that will provide users with online access to comprehensive trade policy information that has been notified to the Organization by member states.

The Integrated Trade Intelligence Portal (I-TIP) will provide information on tariffs, non-tariff measures and related-trade statistics.

In its current version, access is limited to WTO members states only. However, I-TIP is to also be made available to the public via the internet, making it a useful tool for governments, the private sector, academia and the public at large.

I-TIP will allow users to see all non-tariff measures (i.e. policy , other than tariffs, that can potentially affect trade in goods) introduced by WTO members for one or more products over a particular timeframe, as elected by the user. It will also provide access to the tariff rates and import flows for the same products for which non-tariff measures, such as anti-dumping measures, have been notified. Over time, measures related to services and intellectual property rights will also be added to I-TIP, the WTO has said.
