The Philippine Tariff Finder (PTF) went online in 2013 in celebration of the Tariff Commission’s 60th anniversary year. In 2015, the facility was upgraded. The database was expanded to include Rules of Origin under the different Free Trade Areas (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 now carries twelve (12) tariff schedules following Philippine implementation of the ASEAN-Hong Kong, China Free Trade Agreement. The facility also carries the updated Product-Specific Rules of Origin for the ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement, the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand FTA, and the ASEAN-Korea FTA.

The PTF was awarded as Finalist in the Government Best Practice Recognition (GBPR) 2019, an annual recognition by the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) of outstanding and innovative practices demonstrated by public sector organizations. The DAP GBPR seeks to recognize successful and validated practices demonstrated by public sector organizations as well as provides a platform to showcase and promote best practices as a response to the rising call for public sector organizations to further enhance the quality of service delivery.
