Re-dissemination means re-using UN Comtrade data as is (without any transformation) in other data platforms (printed or online), not for internal use


The re-dissemination of UN Comtrade data

Prerequisite: to be able to re-disseminate, you have to be an active Premium Pro subscriber


Cost of re-dissemination: It is based on the type of application:

(i) data visualization/analytics: 1 x Premium Pro subscription per year

(ii) data extraction: Fee depends on a case-by-case basis, and in addition, you have to ensure that your users are also UN Comtrade subscribers (Premium Individual or Pro). There is an API for this.


Now, the difference between data visualization/analytics and data extraction: if you limit 100,000 records per download, then it is data visualization/analytics.  If you do not limit the number of records to be downloaded, then it is data extraction.


Exception: No re-dissemination fee for the following use cases:

• A small number of records (up to 100,000)

• In Public/free-of-charge data visualization/analytics


In conclusion, having in mind an active Premium Pro subscription, you should choose which re-dissemination option is best for you:

* Option (i):  re-dissemination for data visualization/analytics application

* Option (ii): re-dissemination for data extraction application
