Introduction to Rules of origin


The EU has free trade agreements (FTAs) with individual countries throughout the world. Beyond the usual Chapter providing for preferential tariff treatment, these agreements also often include clauses on trade facilitation and rule-making in areas such as investment, intellectual property, government procurement, technical standards and sanitary and phytosanitary issues.
