Regional & Bilateral Trade Agreements

What trade agreements are available to your transactions, whether your goods meet the Agreement’s rules of origin and what due diligence you must undertake to ensure compliance can be an obstacle to your business.

In the 2011 World Customs Organisation’s Annual Council Sessions Report, the WCO stated that “Onerous rules of origin procedures, sometimes associated with free trade agreements, have contributed to these low figures (referring to the volume of cargo using preferential trade agreements) by making the costs of compliance requirements higher than the perceived worth of the underlying preference margins.”
