Country of origin of goods. Certificates of origin

The current development of world production and trade actualizes the problem of developing clear rules for determining the origin of goods, that is, finding out the country or regional integration group in which the goods were produced. This is due to the fact that the rapid technological changes that take place in the areas of information technology, telecommunications, and transport infrastructure enable end-product producers to attract resources from the most remote countries where there is more skilled or cheap labor, unique or inexpensive raw materials, materials and components. Indeed, for today almost all the products offered on the world market are produced in not one country. The intensification of the use of global market resources for national production, as well as the internationalization of logistic schemes, lead to the possibility of negotiating tariff and other barriers to trade that are applied by governments to goods imported into the country. Thus, the liberalization of the exchange of products, raw materials and components between countries complicates the procedures for determining the origin of goods, as well as the application of a wide range of trade policy instruments to other countries. These factors have necessitated the development and use of international rules for determining the origin of goods.

The importance of rules for determining the origin of goods for both Ukraine and its trading partners is related to the need for state regulation of the state of the domestic market, foreign trade and the implementation of the trade policy of the country as a whole. In the trade policy of many countries, measures are being implemented, the application of which requires a clear definition of the country of origin. According to the WTO rules, such national government measures include:

- Compensation and anti-dumping duties; - Emergency protection measures against imports; - quantitative restrictions, including tariff quotas; - control of the correct use of marks or labels indicating the country of origin; - the settlement of trade disputes through the WTO mechanism.

In the case where a country is a member of a preferential trade agreement, its government must be sure that preferential or zero customs duties are applied to countries to which the agreed preferences are indeed distributed. This requires confirmation that imported goods have been wholly or substantially transformed in a country that is part of a preferential group.
