Preferential rates of duty are extended by Australia and New Zealand to each other's produce or manufacture in accordance with the Rules of Origin provisions of the Australia-New Zealand Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement (ANZCERTA).
ANZCERTA - changes to Article 3
As foreshadowed in Australian Customs and Border Protection Notice No. 2012/24, the Department advises that the changes to Article 3 of the Australia – New Zealand Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement (ANZCERTA) have commenced on 30 April 2012. Please note that the changes do not affect the codes for claiming ANZCERTA preferential tariff treatment in the Integrated Cargo System. For further information on the changes please refer to the notice.
Reminder – Repeal of ANZCERTA Factory Cost Rules of Origin (P50)
The Department would like to remind industry that Preference Rule Type “P50” is no longer available for claiming preferential tariff rates under the Australia – New Zealand Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement (ANZCERTA), as the ANZCERTA factory cost rules of origin were repealed on 1 January 2012. The repeal does not affect other existing Preference Rule Types under the ANZCERTA. For further information please see Australian Customs Notices 2006/64 and 2011/33.
