Rules of Origin: Made in ... where? Online Workshop 


Why are rules of origin important?

Determining where a product comes from is no longer easy, when raw materials and parts criss-cross the globe in complex supply chains.

Rules of origin are therefore needed so that a single country of origin is attributed to each product.

Why do I need to establish the origin of my goods?

Duty rates, preferential trade agreements, trade sanctions and import quotas are all regulated according to country of origin. As the UK develops its own trade policy, negotiates free trade agreements and sets its own tariffs, an understanding of the rules concerning origin will become vital for UK importers and exporters.
