New Zealand-Korea Free Trade Agreement

The New Zealand – Republic of Korea Free Trade Agreement (KNZFTA) was signed in Seoul on 23 March 2015 and entered into force in December 2015.

Further information on the Rules of Origin is available on Fact Sheet 49 (PDF 346 KB). Additional information can also be found on the MFAT website.

Claiming Preference under KNZFTA

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

The importer can choose which form of documentary evidence of origin it seeks from the exporter or producer, as either form is acceptable to the importing Customs authority providing it contains all the necessary data elements.
