ChAFTA removes or reduces trade barriers between Australia and our largest trading partner, China. This benefits Australian companies that intend to export or are currently considering products of Australian origin to China or that currently wish to import products of Chinese origin for sale in Australia or intended to be used as inputs for further production. This shipping document is intended exclusively to prove the origin of the goods in order to meet customs or commercial requirements. It can now be used in the following way: Australian export products that wish to benefit from preferential treatment must be accompanied by appropriate origin documents, such as ChAFTA Certificates of Origin, completed in accordance with the requirements of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement. Check with your local customs office to find out if you have an appropriate C/O. If so, ask your provider to apply it for you. It`s a simple and free process. ChAFTA certificates of origin or other certificate of origin documents under the ChAFTA must prove to the Chinese customs authorities the originating status of their products so that their importer can benefit from the reduced rates of customs duties under the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement. For Australian exporters, products “originating” in the ChAFTA and eligible for the ChAFTA Certificate of Origin are applicable: only products originating in either China or Australia benefit from preferential duties. The ChAFTA`s preferential rules of origin are agreed criteria to ensure that this is the case. These criteria are necessary to avoid handling in which goods are diverted by third parties, either by China or Australia, in order to avoid higher tariffs. The process can start from the day of departure of the ship, as most C/Os need the departure time as accurate as possible. 0.
