Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) Agreement

The Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) Agreement was signed in Santiago, Chile on 8 March 2018 and comes into force on 30 December 2018.

There is more information on the Rules of Origin in this Information Sheet (PDF 43.5 KB). Additional information can also be found on the MFAT website.

Claiming Preference under CPTPP

Under CPTPP a claim that goods are eligible for preferential tariff treatment is based on a written or electronic declaration of origin completed by the importer, exporter or producer and needs to be in the importer’s possession when the claim for preferential access is made.

The importer can choose the form of documentary evidence of origin it seeks from the exporter or producer, provided it contains all the necessary data elements. A guidance template is available for traders to use if they wish.
