EPA Export Handbook – a guide to help EU SMEs export to Japan

You would like to know if your goods may benefit from the existing free trade agreement between the EU and Japan?

You are exporting to Japan but are unsure what 'preferential tariff treatment', 'rules of origin' and 'HS codes' are?

"How to export using the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA)", can help you find your way and also point you to sources of help and information. The handbook includes straightforward explanations, step-by-step instructions, and other tips.

If you have questions about the EPA, or would like details of webinars on specific EPA topics please contact the EU-Japan Centre's EPA Helpdesk.
