Certificates of Origin

Certificates of Origin: Complying with new CPTPP

With the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP)­­
coming into force on 30 December for six of the eleven partner countries, we thought you’d like a bit of information on the changes to certificates of origin that will occur. We have put together a document to help answer a number of questions you may have regarding the CPTPP.

The following PDF will cover:

  • What is the CPTPP and what does it mean for New Zealand exporters?
  • Which countries does CPTPP involve and when does CPTPP come into effect?
  • How can I find out whether there is a preferential duty rate under CPTPP for our goods?
  • Are there any other requirements to qualify for preferential duties under CPTPP?
  • How do I show that our goods are of New Zealand Origin?
  • Is a Certificate of Origin required?
  • Does the Chamber of Commerce stamp the Certificate of Origin?
  • If there is no Certificate of Origin form, how do I format a CPTPP certification of origin?
