Traders and exporters can enjoy preferential tariff treatment under the AANZFTA. To avail of this, goods must comply with the AANZFTA Rules of Origin.

The AANZFTA has established a mechanism where exporters could apply and obtain a Certificate of Origin in accordance with the Operational Certification Procedures that would ascertain that the goods being exported to another AANZFTA Party are eligible for preferential tariff treatment.
