Full text of AANZFTA

Go to Chapter 3 for “Rules of Origin”. This section explains how goods qualify as being of New Zealand Origin.

Annex 2 First Protocol Product Specific Rules Listing of the First Protocol Product Specific Rules (PSR) of Origin for goods under the AANZ FTA.


FOB Value:

For exports with Origin Code “RVC”,  the exporter is required to declare the FOB value, either in Box 9 of the AANZFTA Certificate of Origin or by providing a separate “Exporter Declaration”.

In the event that the FOB value is not disclosed on the Certificate of Origin for goods with Origin Code "RVC":

  • the FOB Value field may be left blank or have a nil value (0.00).  
  • the separate FOB Value Declaration will be required to be presented to the importing customs authorities together with the certified AANZFTA certificate of origin.
  • The FOB Value Declaration does not need to be certified by the Chamber of Commerce.  Template may be downloaded from the link below.  Complete and provide direct to the importer.  


AANZFTA First Protocol:

The First Protocol to AANZFTA entered into force for 11 of the 12 AANZFTA Parties on or before January 2016, with the exception of Indonesia.  Indonesia implemented First Protocol on 1 March 2019 (Reference: Indonesian Regulation PMK 11/PMK.04/2019).

  • AANZFTA Certificates of Origin were issued in original format for exports to Indonesia until 28 February 2019.
  • First Protocol AANZFTA Certificates of Origin are issued for exports to Indonesia from 1 March 2019 and have been issued for all other AANZFTA parties from 1 April 2016. 

What is different?

  1. FOB Value will no longer appear of the Certificate of Origin (except for exports when the Origin code includes RVC)
  2. Different origin codes apply for manufactured goods
  3. The attachment pages are now called “Continuation Sheet”

The First Protocol to amend AANZFTA:

  • removes the requirement for the free on board (FOB) value to be supplied by the exporter, except where origin is being claimed using a value-added Regional Value Content (RVC) rule
  • simplifies the presentation of the Rules of Origin (RoO) into a comprehensive listing
  • provides for the implementation of the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System 2012 (HS 2012) in AANZFTA’s RoO, eliminating the current requirement for business to operate in both HS 2007 and HS 2012, and making it easy to implement future changes to the Harmonised System of Tariffs
  • introduces a modified CoO form

NB:  Indonesia implemented First Protocol on 1 March 2019.  FOB Value requirement for exports to Cambodia and Myanmar ended from 1 January 2018.  Cambodia and Myanmar confirmed to the AANZFTA parties in April 2018 that the FOB value is no longer required.  AANZFTA Certificates of Origin now only contain FOB value for exports when the origin code required is "RVC".
