Two years since its launch in 2013, the Commission is pleased to announce the enhancement of its Philippine Tariff Finder (PTF). The facility's database has been expanded and now includes Rules of Origin. Applicable tariff rates pursuant to reciprocity arrangements under Free Trade Agreements have also been identified. Multi-search options have been developed to facilitate comparative analysis.

The enhancement of the PTF is in support of the Philippine Development Plan Midterm Update and the Boracay Action Agenda to Globalize MSMEs.
