Search Import/Export information Information Type

Information year

To use the above import export data sets :

  1. One needs to know the Harmonized System (HS) Code of the commodity of interest by using the link Search HS Code. In the ‘Goods Description’ part please write the commodity of interest by using different synonym English words. For example instead of writing ‘car’ if one writes ‘vehicle’ and click find, the search will provide the HS Codes.
  2. After obtaining the HS Code, one needs to filter the code from the downloaded import or export data sets.
  3. From the downloaded excel file, CPC refers to the Customs Procedure Code of 7 digits. It is made up of two codes namely the Extended Procedure Code (EPC of 4 digits) and followed by Additional Procedure Code (APC of 3 digits).It shows how the different types of taxes are applied during importation. To know the CPC in brief one can refer to the table below. To calculate the tax of known HS Code and known value (the item of interest and its value), use the link Tax Calculation.
  4. Values in ETB (Ethiopian Birr) are converted to the USD using the annual average rate of the transaction and for the current year the average of the 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 months have been used.
  5. Data for the current year will be updated every two months.
