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

Annex 2 Original Product Specific Rules Listing of the Original Product Specific Rules (PSR) of Origin for goods under the AANZ FTA. Currently required for exports to Indonesia and goods registration

(NB: First Protocol PSRs will be uploaded once Indonesia adopts First Protocol)

FOB Value:

For exports with Origin Code “RVC” and to Indonesia, Myanmar and Cambodia, 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, the FOB Value field may be left blank or have a nil value (0.00).  

  • For Indonesia, Cambodia and Myanmar AANZFTA Certificates of Origin with a nil FOB value a separate FOB Value Declaration will be required by the importing customs authorities together with the certified certificate of origiin.
  • The FOB Value Declaration does not need to be certified by the Chamber of Commerce.  Complete and provide direct to the importer.

AANZFTA First Protocol:

The First Protocol to AANZFTA entered into force for all 12 AANZFTA Parties on or before January 2016, with the exception of Indonesia. It is not expected that Indonesia will implement First Protocol before June 2017.

  • AANZFTA Certificates of Origin will be issued in original format for exports to Indonesia until further notice.
  • First Protocol AANZFTA Certificates of Origin are issued for exports to all other parties.

What is different?

  1. FOB Value will no longer appear of the Certificate of Origin (except for exports to Cambodia and Myanmar and 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
