AANZFTA will enter-into-force for the remaining five ASEAN Member Countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia and Thailand) 60 days after they provide formal notification of the completion of their internal ratification procedures.

In order to take advantage of preferential access that AANZFTA offers, exporters will require an AANZFTA Certificate of Origin certified by an approved body. The New Zealand Chambers of Commerce have extensive experience with the certification of preferential FTA Certificates of Origin and can provide exporters with the support and resources they need to capitalise on the AANZFTA.
