Research is one of our services divisions, which focuses on the individual compilation of information in response to concrete enquiries.
Our working method
Our specialised foreign trade editorial team researches data and information for publications and for Data Content in cooperation with our international network and contacts at authorities of third countries. The data pool thus created offers the possibility for queries of high quality in answer to specific informational needs. Possible questions may relate to topics such as nomenclatures, customs tariffs, duties and taxes, preferences and rules of origin, and much more.
For our customers, this is the answer to a precise question. Depending on the kind of enquiry and the topic of the research, we will strive to find the best solution for providing you with the information and data. Therefore, results may be supplied in individually edited dossiers, tables or matrices, compiled from our publications and sources. The results may also be made available in open formats, which may be customised for use in existing interfaces.
Individual compilations may be prepared with regard to a single country or across nations, and they may contain a single piece of information or a multitude of data. Of course, if desired, updates of the initial material on a regular basis may be arranged.
As opposed to other providers, we do not simply turn the given information into a different format, but we also edit and author the contents of our publications in all formats. Therefore, requests for further clarification can be answered and personalised compilations can be prepared.
