Proofs of origin (documents)

In case the rule of origin attributed to your product is not succeeded product (see "sufficiently transformed goods" section) still the product may be considered as originating if the value of the non-originating materials that did not manage to fulfil the rule does not exceed a concrete threshold specified in each set of rules of origin (normally 10% or 15% of the ex work price of your good) .

How does it work exactly?

If the rule attributed to your good is as that described in "sufficiently transformed goods" section (see a change of tariff classification), (manufacture from materials of any heading except that of the product), the tolerance permits you to use non-originating materials which has the same tariff heading than the final value provided that the value of these materials do not exceed the tolerance threshold specified in the relevant set of rules of origin.

If the rule attributed to your good is as that described "sufficiently transformed goods" section (see manufacture from yarn/meat/etc) manufacture from [yarn] [meat] , etc, because of cumulation the tolerance permits you to use non-originating materials that represent a later stage of production provided that their value does not exceed the tolerance threshold specified in the relevant set of rules of origin .

If the rule attributed to your good is as that described in "sufficiently transformed goods" section (see a value added rule), (manufacture in which the value of all the materials used do not exceed [X% of the ex work price of the product), note that you cannot use the tolerance as the threshold of the specific rule of origin attributed to your product [x]% cannot be exceeded in any case.
