Chapter 2 of the AANZFTA on Trade in Goods details the progressive liberalisation of tariffs from the entry into force of the Agreement. AANZFTA aims to eliminate tariffs for at least 90% of products traded in the region within a specified timeline. Australia and New Zealand committed to achieve 100% elimination of tariffs by 2020.

Further reduction or elimination of tariffs is also allowed under AANZFTA through negotiations between Parties or through a party’s unilateral action. AANZFTA also allows for future discussions among Parties on quantitative restrictions and non-tariff measures with a view of enhancing trade under the Agreement.

AANZFTA Parties are required to publish (including in the internet) laws, regulations, decisions, and rulings on matters pertaining to trade in goods.
