About the product
Transparency and predictability are essential elements for the cross-border movement of goods. Stakeholders need to know the conditions for the entry or exit of their goods well before the goods arrive at the border in order to prepare all regulatory requirements and commercial negotiations. A Trade Information Portal (TIP) is a facility that compiles these requirements and publishes the information on an internet portal accessible to all relevant traders. This recommendation provides guidance on the setup of such a portal, the information that should be shared, the governance, as well as some elements that have been identified as potential evolutions. It is accompanied by a repository of case studies of such facilities in order to help countries navigate through the best possible solutions for their requirements.
