Basics by Free Trade Agreement: Australia
If I believe after thoroughly reviewing my product, its inputs, and the applicable Rule of Origin, that there remains ambiguity as to the "originating" status of the product under the U.S.-Australia FTA, is there a way that I can find out the position of Australian customs prior to the arrival of my goods in Australia?
The Customs authority of Australia will issue "advance rulings" at the written request of the importer, exporter, or producer on questions of tariff classification, customs valuation, country of origin, and whether the good qualifies as originating under the FTA. Extensive information regarding the facts and circumstances of the inquiry will be required by the Customs authority prior to issuing such a ruling.
