EPA Helpdesk Webinar 27: Rules of Origin

17-11-20 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM CET

What to know before starting trade exchanges with Japan?

Even if you already export to some FTA-countries, you will need specific information if you intend to have trade with Japan as the EU-Japan EPA is very different from the other trade agreements concluded by the EU.  This presentation will present you what to start with, and will put the focus on the main differences with former agreements. In addition, this webinar will analyse the best and the easiest way to put into practice the EU-Japan EPA and will also provide some useful links with trustworthy information.

This webinar is part of a series of webinars by the EU-Japan EPA Helpdesk. Each webinar will address a different topic or sector and will look at the changes the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will make and the opportunities it will create. Each webinar will be accompanied by a factsheet and a practical guide. For more information on the EPA Helpdesk please click here.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to put, administratively, everything in place before exporting to Japan.

Topics covered:

  • Where to find the legal base of the EPA between EU and japan
  • How to fill in the application form to obtain the status of “Registered exporter”
  • The different possibilities of proof of origin
  • How to issue the origin statement
  • What origin criteria codes must be mentioned in the origin statement
  • The cumulation possibilities with Japan
  • The layout of the Product specific rules (sufficient working rules) and the signification of the different abbreviations
