Welcome to the Quantitative Restrictions Website provided by WTO
The Quantitative Restrictions website (QR website) is an application of import and export, quantitative restrictions, such as prohibitions, non-automatic import licences, quotas, among others, notified by WTO Members as part of their notification commitment pursuant to the procedures in the Quantitative Restriction Decision (QR Decision) adopted by the Council for Trade in Goods in 22 June 2012.
For more information on the QR Decision, see document
In accordance with paragraph 1 of the QR Decision, "Members shall make complete notifications of all quantitative restrictions in force by 30 September 2012 and at two yearly intervals thereafter.
They should also notify changes to those quantitative restrictions as soon as possible, but not later than six months from their entry into force".
This application allows you to search and export available information on any notified QR.
It allows a dynamic search through all Members' notifications according to a selection of criteria, such as product, type of measure, trading partner, among others.
