Exports to ASEAN and Australia

Certification and Trade Facilitation


Goods imported into another party to the AANZFTA Agreement from New Zealand, for which originating status is claimed, require a certificate of origin issued by a certification body in New Zealand to evidence that those goods are entitled to preferential tariff treatment.

Certification bodies are able to issue certificates of origin in respect of the AANZFTA Agreement to enable eligible New Zealand exports to claim the applicable preferential tariff treatment when imported into another party to the AANZFTA Agreement.

The certification bodies in New Zealand are:

  • New Zealand Chambers of Commerce Inc;
  • Trade Window Origin Limited
  • WiseTech Global Limited

Note: Any changes relating to the certification bodies will be notified to members of the trade community as soon as possible.

The contact details of each certification body are:

Customs is not involved in the day-to-day administration of the verification system. The system is run entirely by the particular certification body. Customs will, however, maintain an oversight to assure itself that valid certificates of origin are being issued, and it will be the link between the certification bodies and the Customs authority in the importing party to address any practical issues that may arise.

New Zealand exporters applying for certificates of origin will need to satisfy the certification body which they elect to use that their goods are originating under the AANZFTA Agreement. Although different certification bodies may have different application processes, the resulting certificate of origin will be issued in the same format.
