    FTA Tariff Formulas

    TL;DR

    A utility library for formalising and working with various types of tariff formulas. To use:

    const formula = TariffFormula.parse('...');
    console.log(formula.signature);
    console.log(formula.quantity);
    console.log(formula.unit);
    console.log(formula.friendly);
    console.log(formula.variables);
    console.log(formula.evaluate(...));
    

    What

    This is an example JavaScript library for parsing tariff formulas and quantities served in DFAT Free Trade Agreements Portal Data.

    This example module and grammar solves the problem of representation and reasoning about tariff formulas by machine in a consistent manner. The grammar is intended to be context-free and described in later section.

    Who

    This is intended for engineers who have to encode and use tariff rates and quantities associated with trade data.

    Where

    All tariff rates and quantity data served in FTA Portal API will be able to be parsed and worked with using this module.

    Why

    People in this domain use a variety of notations to often refer to the same information. Even the most common and simple case of a tariff percentage. E.g. a 5% tariff may be represented as percentage, i.e. "5%," or as a fraction, "0.005," or sometimes there won't be any units associated with it and it will need to be decoded based on context or implicit or non-expressed knowledge. This is not very helpful for machine use of the data and was a problem that needed to solved to accurately represent tariff commitments.

    In terms of applicability, existence and conformance is more important than specifics of the representation.

    When

    This particular example implementation will facilitate JavaScript and Nodejs users. This is developed to support the examples and use cases we had to implement to support our services.

    Practitioners using other technologies and platforms are encouraged to treat this as one example implementation and develop their own implementations as necessary.

    Jison is used for implementation. See src/grammar.jison for more details.

    Examples

    • 5 u '%'
    • 5 u 'usd/item'
    • maximum(minimum(0.05 * var_marker_price, 5) u 'usd/item', 15 u '%')

    Dependencies

    sudo npm install -g babel-cli
    sudo npm install -g browserify
    sudo npm install -g jison
    sudo npm install -g nodemon
