Abstract: This document is a catalogue of WEB services providing data on global trade. It updates to March 2010 the first edition published in 2007. Each service is described in the catalogue according to a form specifying data fields, geographical coverage, temporal span, search criteria and reporting facilities on data records. The information has been derived from WEB sites, email contacts with service providers, trial runs, and interviews with users. Services listed herein offer data on imports and exports on all types of commodities over the last decade. The use of the data is generic: they can support studies related to trade in diverse domains and applications. Trade data described in this catalogue have a regulatory origin because they stem from declarations made by importers and exporters to customs authorities. The data are collected at national level, processed, and released for public access under formats respecting national provisions on data confidentiality. Trade data are released in transactional or statistical format and may have a national or multi-national scope. Services on trade transactions are run by companies and are accessible after the payment of subscription fees. Services on statistical data (obtained by aggregating transactions) often have a multi-national scope and are provided for free access by international and governmental organizations, and statistical offices, or as pay services by companies. This catalogue has been compiled as part of the activities on nuclear trade information analysis within the action IANUS (Information Analysis for Nuclear Security, action nr. 53104 of JRC IPSC FP7).
