The Trade Barrier Register (TBR) was created to serve and support the Australian trading community. As a strong trading nation, Australian trade is vital for the strength and prosperity of the economy. Exporters and importers have benefited from the opportunities that the removal and reduction of tariffs provides.
The Export Council of Australia (ECA) and Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL) and the Industry Growth Centres were aware of the growing number of trade barriers that emerged through international trade. They decided to come together with their expertise and do something about it.
The TBR allows Australian businesses to share their experiences so that trends can be established and analysed so that substantive policy action can be taken.
