Free Trade Agreements (FTA) produce a full integration with a trading partner. Within these FTAs our government agrees how any goods proved to originate in the party’s country can be traded with zero duty, thus making it easier to do business with that partner.

Registration for this event is now closed.

FTAs are different for relationship and sometime merge into larger trading blocs which means knowing how to find out how they work is crucial to taking advantage of the benefits on offer.

You’ll leave with a clear understanding of:

  • Where do you find FTAs?
  • What do you need to do to fulfil the criteria of an FTA?
  • What counts as originating
  • Other mitigations and derogations
  • Paperwork and how to record originating data
