Origin criterion: change in tariff classification
04-02-2021

Product-specific rules (PSRs) of origin are the requirements for a product, which incorporates non-originating materials, to be originating in a country. PSRs are created based on origin criteria. One criterion is a change in tariff classification (examples of other criteria: a production process, a maximum value or weight of non-originating materials). It means that any non-originating material used in the production of the product must be classified in a chapter, heading or subheading1 other than that of the product.
