Market Access Barriers Database


Since 2009 CEFTA Parties have been systematically identifying and solving barriers in trade in goods. In 2012 the Parties decided to expand the scope to a broader definition of the barriers including services and to make the methodology internationally comparable while applying the UNCTAD classification of non tariff measures. In 2013 Parties are eager to go on line with a new feature of the database which allows for more standardised identification and reporting on the barriers and establishes an interaction between the recorded market access barriers and the trade volume of the product subject to the relevant barriers.

The users can track and monitor activities in real time through graphical tools, based on the status or any other pre-defined component while the case is being created. The combination of sector, commodity and product code provides real trade information about the product, origin and destination party for at least the last three years.
