I believe minopret is incorrect on the use restriction of UN/LOCODE to non-commercial use w/o permission. There is no where on the UNECE site that indicates such a restriction. All the verbage would indicate the contrary. The terms of use simply indicate that the material is w/o warranty and the user will indemify the UN. This statement can be found on the ...

You can query the entire database through the legacy interface. BUT, it still restricts the download to max of 50,000 records. You will need to breakup your queries to get what you want http://comtrade.un.org/db/dqBasicQuery.aspx This shows the contact info if you want to get it directly from them. Note, I queried for the entire database: The query will ...

The International Trade Administration (ITA) has just released Version 2 of all of its APIs on its Data Services Platform. This means developers can access even more export data, more easily. Here are the updates New Data: You asked and we answered! We are now providing access to: Tariff Rates from all US Free Trade Agreements FAQs About Exporting. ...

It might take quite a few queries, but all trade data should be available here: https://comtrade.un.org/data/ You can select up to 5 countries (either as reporter or as partner) to view their trade with all other countries (select all in the other box). So in about 50 queries you should be done. There's also a bulk download option which I haven't tried.

It is possible to access and download the data via an API. The queries you can submit are also restricted, but it is possible to facilitate and automate the extraction by using some programming. You can write a script to download the data in chunks and assemble them afterwards. Here is an example of how you could do it in R. A first chunk covers the years ...

For whatever it's worth now, here's how it looked to me, having no relevant affiliation or authority. But I'm glad to see now from the other answer that "UN/LOCODE is freely available to all interested users." Good. If you need the code list for commercial or other non-personal use, I had thought for the following reasons that your procedure is to contact ...
