Relations with HS

The WCO Guide for Technical Update of Preferential Rules of Origin, in the form of a new Annex in two parts, ANNEX IV – A Table correlating HS 2017 – HS 2022 and ANNEX IV – B Impact of HS 2022 Amendments on rules of origin (origin criteria), was endorsed by the Permanent Technical Committee (PTC) in October 2021. It is currently awaiting the subsequent official Council approval at the Council’s next session in June 2022.

However, given the need for the document to assist Members in current work, and noting that it has already been endorsed by the PTC, it is published as a pre-approval copy on the WCO website.

Once approved by the Council, it will be annexed to the Guide.
