Rules Of Origin

Rules of Origin (ROOs) controlling the eligibility of imported goods for preferential duty rates are established during the negotiation of each new FTA. It is an area of great complexity: ROOs are often opaque, difficult for importers to obtain and even harder to understand.


Many importing companies do not have the in-house expertise to identify the ROOs applicable to their importing operations or to obtain the necessary evidence to support eligibility for a preferential rate. Tanda can supply that expertise and ensure the importer is appropriately protected by accurate and detailed documentation in the event of a customs audit


More detailed explanations of this subject are contained in Tanda’s submission to the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade regarding potential ROOs to be included in the Australia-China FTA [link] and our opinion article in Asia Today International Magazine.
