This is a detailed guide on how to read WTO Schedules of Commitments for Goods and Services. The Schedules are part of the Legal Texts of the WTO Uruguay Round Agreements. They comprise about 27,000 pages of specific commitments by 153 members of the WTO on market access conditions for their markets. Understanding how to interpret the Schedules is essential for anyone wishing to glean information for academic, official, or business purposes. Commissioned and reviewed by the WTO Secretariat, this is a unique guide to understanding the Schedules.

  • A detailed description is provided of information contained in goods and services schedules, helping to guide readers through fundamental concepts behind individual legal texts
  • Short and concise, which will benefit newcomers wanting to understand the workings of various components within the WTO system
  • Ease of use and accessibility are the priority over scholarly analysis and commentary
