Market Access Database

The Market Access Database (MADB) provides an overview of the barriers that the EU is in the process of investigating with its trade partners.

In the framework of the Commission’s Market Access Strategy, the Market Access Database (MADB), freely available to all economic operators throughout the EU and acceding/candidate countries via the Internet, was set up and has been progressively developed in order to meet the following needs:

  • to provide basic information of interest to EU exporters (e.g. import duties, related taxes and documentary import requirements applicable in export markets, trade statistics, studies on market access related topics);
  • to list all trade barriers affecting EU exports by country and by sector and to ensure systematic follow-up of the barrier identified and
  • to provide an interactive means of communication between business and the European authorities, allowing an exchange of information on-line.

MADB is available online at the following address:
