Statistics and Charts

In this page you will find some statistics and charts on the Notifications and Ratifications of the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) received to date.  

Category A, B and C Notifications:  there are special provisions that allow developing and least developed country (LDC) members to implement the Agreement at their own pace. Each member will determine when it will implement each of the technical provisions, and, it can identify provisions that it will only be able to implement upon the receipt of technical assistance and support for capacity building.

Ratifications: the Trade Facilitation Agreement will enter into force once two-thirds of Members have domestically ratified a Protocol of Amendment and notified the WTO of their acceptance of this Protocol.
