Trade Barriers Database
We developed the first Brazilian database on international trade barriers, called 'Barreiras de Acesso': www.barreirasdeacesso.com.br . The website contains information on trade barriers faced by Brazilian exporters, FAQs, concepts, training material, presentarions and news relating to market access. The focus is on non-tariff measures (NTM) such as technical, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, offering details on the issues that reduce or restrict Brazilian exports to each country.
The database has been used by exporters in order to identify trade barriers and non-tariff measures, as well as to prepare reports for business associations to present their demands to the Brazilian government.
We are also developing a database on Brazilian import barriers, i.e. trade barriers when entering the Brazilian market.
