Preference & Rules of origin
Wed 19 April 2017, 13:15 – 16:15 BST
Goods are produced all over the world, and some may be the result of production in more than one country. It may prove to be a difficult task when trying to determine the correct country of origin. Terms like processing, undertaking or modification may not be substantial enough to warrant a change in origin, and then there the minimal processes to consider.
This half-day session will help you understand the criteria for correctly determining origin, which rules are applicable, and your responsibilities as an exporter. These are significant considerations for any business, and could provide significant advantages when trading beyond the EU.
This is part of our customs workshop series, designed to help importers and exporters navigate customs procedures effectively. Each half day session will focus on specific customs procedures to help ensure you’re businesses is benefitting from them, maintain effective and compliant in-house processes, and minimise potential Duty/VAT liabilities.
Following the introduction of the Union Customs Code in May 2016, there are planned changes to import, export and storage procedures. This will affect any business seeking authorisation for customs regimes, and will lead to more scrutiny of valuations, tariff codes and origins.
