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 carries all eleven (11) Philippine tariff schedules. The Product-Specific Rules of Origin have been updated for the ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement, the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand FTA, and the ASEAN-Korea FTA.

This Tariff Book is published by the Tariff Commission. It is based on the latest tariff nomenclature implemented by the Philippines and provides current Most Favoured Nation (MFN) and ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement (ATIGA) tariff rates. For more information, please click here.
