Trade Problems & Barriers: Foreign Trade Barriers

What is the TARA Database?

The TCC's Trade and Related Agreements Database (TARA) includes active, binding agreements between the United States and its trading partners covering manufactured products and services (see Site Map for disclaimers). It is designed to provide the public with information on agreements currently in force and does not include agriculture agreements. For information on agricultural trade issues, please contact the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

In addition it contains Exporter's Guides. The Exporter’s Guides are quick, concise explanations of individual trade agreements. Aimed especially at small to medium-sized exporters, the Guides will tell you what each agreement does without having to read through the detailed, technical language of the full text.
