14/09/2013: Tariff Commission Announces Takeoff of Philippine Tariff Finder

ANNOUNCEMENT
WDC-078-2013
14 September 2013

In celebration of its 60th year of service, the Tariff Commission introduces new user-friendly interface in their website called Philippine Tariff Finder (PTF). With a keyword or an ASEAN Harmonized Tariff Nomenclature (AHTN) 2012 product code, the public can now easily access Philippine tariff rates on specific commodities online.

A collaborative project with the Information Communications Technology Office of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the PTF is first of its kind in the ASEAN community and offers a database search engine of eight existing Philippine tariff schedules.

This breakthrough sets forth an improved and more reliable Tariff Commission that works in full support to the national drive towards inclusive, sustainable and rapid growth. PTF serves to the objective of the Executive Order No. 43 to orient government programs, projects, and activities for the Filipino people for focus and optimal impact.

PTF is hosted on the Commission’s website at www.tariffcommission.gov.ph.
