The Consolidated Tariff Schedules (CTS) is a database maintained by the WTO Secretariat that seeks to consolidate all the latest certified tariff concessions and other commitments contained in the WTO Members' Schedules of concessions. It contains in a standardized format all WTO Members' commitments on the tariffs they will apply to imports from other Members. The database has been established as a working tool only, without any implications regarding the legal status of the information contained in the database. All Members' CTS files (approved and provisional) are directly sourced from the Tariff Analysis Online (TAO)

Please refer to the certifications and other legal instruments in case you need to access the legal documents where these obligations are reflected. A comprehensive list of all such documents, as well as the ongoing procedures that may have not yet been certified, can be accessed on each Member profile page under the tab All procedures and legal instruments as well as other pages on this website.
