Rules of Origin - Handbook

Rules of origin are now more topical than ever. They have become a very prominent feature of today's trading system and various regional trade agreements are being negotiated across the globe.

While negotiations are going on to harmonize the non-preferential rules of origin, the proliferation of preferential trade agreements represents an important concern in terms of customs revenues.

The rules of origin enable the preferential agreements to be correctly implemented, which promotes the development of trade and encourages investment.

The aim of this handbook is to enhance the understanding and correct application of rules of origin. For more information click here [es]
