EBA Machinery

Quantifying laws and regulations for improved access to agricultural machinery

EBA machinery indicators measure obstacles facing dealers wishing to import tractors for sale. Besides meeting the requirements for import and registration, the indicators also measure the regulations related to standards and safety for operators of tractors.

The team is currently collecting updated and expanded information for 80 countries around the world and will publish this data in 2019. For more information or to share your expertise, contact Maksat Korooluev (Team Leader), at ebamechanization@worldbankgroup.org.
