TO qualify for a reduced or nil rate of duty, importers need to comply with the rules of origin set out in the trade agreements they are trading under. This means that importers need to be able to prove the economic nationality – ORIGIN – in a way that satisfies the criteria set out in the agreement.

This half day course takes an in-depth look at the rules of origin, providing clarity between preference origin and non-preference origin and how to establish where goods originate “officially”.

  • Rules for Preferential origin
  • Trade Agreements
  • Movement certificates – EUR1

COURSE OUTCOME: Delegates will have gained the knowledge of how origin is established, how to complete the relevant documentation, how to claim preferential tariffs and the internal requirements to support the process.
