Non-Tariff Barriers

Trade barriers other than tariffs. A common example is a countervailing duty, which enacts a tariff under certain defined circumstances. Non-tariff barriers have the same restrictive effect on trade as tariffs. They have become more common as the World Trade Organization has gradually reduced the circumstances under which a tariff may be imposed.
