The U.S. Commerce Department’s International Trade Administration has updated its Free Trade Agreement Tariff Tool (FTA Tariff Tool) to include the latest information on tariffs on U.S. products exported to Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) markets. When enforced, the TPP will eliminate more than 18,000 foreign import taxes that various countries place on Made-In-America exports.
FTA Tariff Tool users can see how TPP and other FTA partner tariffs on individual products – searchable by keyword or tariff code – are treated under an agreement. Additionally, U.S. importers and exporters can see the current tariff and future tariffs applied to their products, as well as the year in which those products become duty free. It also incorporates agricultural and non-agricultural goods and includes product specific rules of origin information.
The updated website also contains an instructional video, quick start guide, and user’s manual.
