Free Trade Agreements (FTAs)

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) are treaties that make trade and investment between two or more economies easier. New Zealand currently has 12 FTAs that are in force and because of this, our exporters and investors can enjoy a myriad of benefits. Including tariff concessions, preferential access to certain sectors and faster entry into markets. 

With our team of international trade experts, we can assist you by deciphering the various regulations, navigating the ‘noodle bowl’ of origin rules (PSRs) and understanding compliance regimes so you and your business can realise the full benefits of FTA’s. 


Free Trade Agreement Certificates of Origin (FTA CO’s)


How to apply for:

NZ China and AANZ FTA COs
As a New Zealand Customs Authorised Certification Body, the Hawke's Bay Chamber of Commerce, issues these CO electronically. Data transmits to NZ Customs and for NZ China CO, direct to China Customs.

NZ Trade Agreements with Korea, Taiwan and CPTTP
Under these FTA New Zealand exporters make a “self-certification of origin”, either as a declaration of origin, or self-issued CO. It is important exporters make accurate declarations, understand the relevant PSR and liability of their origin declaration for themselves and the importer.

Our Chamber will electronically review and certify self-issued CO or declarations on request for single consignment COs only.
