Basics by Free Trade Agreement: Australia
Why do I need to go through the process of qualifying my good if I don't even need a Certificate of Origin?
Any claim for preferential treatment under the U.S.-Australia FTA is a declaration whose truthfulness may be verified or audited by Australian customs. If a preference has been claimed and the goods are found not to qualify, the duty benefit will be lost and penalties may be assessed. Declarations that are found after the fact to be deliberately false may result in significant penalties.
