Annex 3A: Section A
ANNEX 3A PRODUCT-SPECIFIC RULES
General Interpretative Note
- A requirement of a change in tariff classification applies
only to non- originating materials.
- Where a specific rule of origin uses the criterion of a
change in tariff classification, and excludes tariff provisions at the level
of a chapter, heading
or subheading of the Harmonised System, it
shall be construed to mean that the rule of origin requires that materials
classified in those excluded provisions
be originating for the good to qualify as originating.
- Where a tariff heading or sub-heading is subject to alternative
specific rules of origin, it shall be sufficient to comply with one of them.
- Where a specific rule of origin provides for a
change in tariff classification for a group of headings or
sub-headings, such a change may occur within and / or outside the group of
headings or sub-headings specified
in the rule, as the case may be,
unless otherwise specified.
