What this course is all about - in a nutshell

This four-hour course is designed to help you deal with all activities required to help you determine the economic nationality of goods in private or public organisations. We will teach you how to take advantage of the Rules of Origin in Free Trade Agreements and also cover the difference between preferential and non-preferential origin.

Background

Which imports qualify as "originating" and are subject to favourable tariffs is determined by the rules of origin. As a rule of thumb, Products “originate” where considerable manufacturing takes place or where value is added above and beyond the minimum processing requirements. There are so-called “product-specific rules (PSRs)” and “minimum processing criteria” that need to be followed: As such, a tie made in Sri Lanka from silk imported from China is considered to be Sri Lankan. But a tie made in China, exported to Sri Lanka and then exported from Sri Lanka to the UK is of “Chinese” origin. To find out whether products are from your nation and what tariffs might be applicable, you need to check and understand the rules of origin. 

What we will cover in this course

In this hands-on Training, the following will be carried out:

  • The concept of origin of goods and rules of origin for preferential and non-preferential origin
  • Overview of Free Trade Agreements and where to find them
  • Elements of a free trade agreement as regards the movement of goods.
  • Legislation regarding the origin of goods
  • The process to determine the origin of goods, in particular when the goods have been processed in several countries
  • The concept and use of Binding Origin Information / Advanced Tariff Ruling - Mock application
