NZ / China Free Trade Agreement (CFTA)

Do my goods qualify for a Certificate of Origin under the NZ/China Free Trade Agreement (CFTA)?

The following flowchart is designed to assist you to determine whether your goods qualify as “originating” under the New Zealand/China Free Trade Agreement. Originating goods qualify for preferential tariff reductions as per the schedule of tariffs here and faster clearance through Chinese Customs (within 48hrs for most goods).

By following the flowchart you will be guided to whether your good qualifies for a Certificate of Origin or not. There are three criteria for a good to qualify:

  • Wholly Obtained (WO)
  • Wholly Produced (WP)
  • Product Specific Rules (PSR)

Product may still be sent to China without a Certificate of Origin but will not qualify for any relevant reductions in tariffs or faster processing times through Chinese Customs.
