Determination of preferential origin means a determination as to whether a product qualifies as an originating product in accordance with the Protocol on Rules of Origin to a Free Trade Agreement or the provisions of the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP).

In the process of determining the preferential origin, you will have to answer these main questions:

  1. What is the HS code of your product?
  2. Is the product wholly obtained in the country or not?
  3. Do these rules provide origin to the product: minimal operations, list rules, cumulation, tolerance?
  4. Are the principles of territoriality, “no drawback”, and direct transport (non-manipulation) respected?

Harmonization of procedures is still work in progress
04-03-2021

The authors of this article argue that harmonization should be high on the agenda both of those who make, and of those who enforce, legislation. To illustrate, they explain some of the issues faced by businesses due to the lack of harmonization of rules, or to the non-harmonized implementation of these rules. Three topics are addressed: the difficulty of identifying preferential rules of origin for a given HS code; the process to obtain a Customs registration number in the European Union; and the implementation of the AEO Programme in Ukraine.
