Rules of Origin and Preference

Seminar Description

The new Trade Cooperation Agreement (TCA) between The United Kingdom and The European Union allow tariff free access for goods that meet The Rules of Origin as set down within the TCA. These rules of origin may differ from those incorporated in other preferential trade agreements, and from The World Trade Organisation Rules that apply to trade between countries where there is no agreement.

The rules of origin are complex and are often not understood by companies involved in international trade. This can lead to inadvertent fraudulent activity by falsely declaring the origin of the goods

This seminar offers a detailed examination of the current preference and non preference rules of origin and their implications for importers and exporters and offers practical guidance to traders as to how to establish the origin.

The courses will benefit exporting and importing staff, sales, purchasing, finance, shipping and banking personnel
