The direct transport rule is set out in most, if not all, preferential trade agreements. Watch the video and learn three situations that might result in violation of the rule and the loss of preferential origin of the goods and as a result - the loss of the financial benefits it brings. 

We start with a short overview of the general background for those who are less familiar with the preferential trade agreements (PTAs) and the rules of origin set out in them. Then we proceed to the main part to discuss how to comply with the direct transport rule in case the goods - on the way from exporting to the importing country - are unloaded and stored in a third country in a warehouse for some time. And finally, we overview two judgements of courts (European Court of Justice and a court in Lithuania) related to the direct transport rule. The content:

  • Why PTAs matter? What are RoO?
  • Direct transport rule. Warehousing in 3rd country (UK-UA PTA)
  • Case-law. Mixing origin (EU GSP). Shipping country (EU ACP)

Please find the slides and the form of the certificate of non-manipulation in the resources section.

Software installation and origin of goods
11-09-2022

Reader's question: ‘We export certain devices to Ukraine. The product-specific rule is based on the value criterion. Can the value of expensive software, which was created and developed in the EU, be counted as the value of originating materials?’ To answer this question, we review various aspects of the topic, which is becoming increasingly important, as more and more goods do not function without software.

Post-clearance verification of preferential origin of goods
17-04-2022

Customs may carry out post-clearance verification of the preferential origin of goods. As a result, a letter from customs might appear on the importer's desk stating that the preferential tariff treatment has been denied. In this article, we look at what is the process of post-clearance verification of preferential origin set out in some of the free trade agreements of Canada, the UK and the EU. Also, we provide practical examples and suggestions on how the preferential origin-related risk could be managed by importers.

Customs issues related to trade in purported forced labor
03-03-2022

While many countries of the world find it morally correct to act regarding the importation of forced labor products, in the case of Xinjiang cotton the actions will be very difficult to achieve. Countries may enact “feel good” laws forbidding importation of such products and international bodies can develop guidelines and principles in commerce, but without the proper enforcement tools nothing can be accomplished unless these laws and guidelines can be enforced.
