In 2015, the facility was upgraded. The database was expanded to include Rules of Origin under the different Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) as well as applicable tariff rates pursuant to reciprocity arrangements under several FTAs. Multi-search options were also developed to facilitate comparative analysis.

The facility has been updated to the 2017 version of the ASEAN Harmonized Tariff Nomenclature (AHTN 2017) and now carries ten (10) tariff schedules with the entry into force of the Philippines’ second bilateral FTA. The Product-Specific Rules of Origin were also updated for the ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement and ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Area.
