Step 1: Find out what is the preferential rate offered for your product
Step 2: Find out your product's rules of origin
Rules of origin are a set of criteria which determine a product's originating status in each respective FTA. It is put in place to ensure that only goods originating from the FTA partner countries will benefit from tariff concessions.
The ESFTA only requires the importer, exporter or manufacturer to make a declaration of the originating status of the product. For the purpose of obtaining preferential tariff treatment in another Party, a proof of origin in the form of an origin declaration shall be completed by an exporter of a Party for products which can be considered as products originating in a Party and which fulfil the other requirement.
