The guides are aimed in particular at small to medium-scale exporters and tell you what any agreement does without having to read the detailed technical language of the full text. The Market Access Map was developed by the International Trade Centre (ITC) to facilitate market access for businesses, governments and researchers. The database, which is visible via the online market access map tool, contains information on tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade in all active trade agreements, not limited to those that have been officially notified to the WTO. It also documents data related to non-preferential trade agreements (e.g. Β Generalized System of Preferences). Until 2019, market access Map provided downloadable links to the text agreements and their rules of origin.  The new version of Market Access Map, to be released this year, will provide direct web links to relevant contract sites and connect to other ITC tools, including the Rules of Origin Facilitator. It should become a versatile instrument to help businesses understand free trade agreements and qualify for the original requirements under these agreements.  In some circumstances, trade negotiations with a trading partner have been concluded but have not yet been signed or ratified. This means that the negotiations are over, but no part of the agreement is yet in force. Below is a map of the world with the biggest trade deals in 2018.
