Appendix 3.3.6 Special Rules of Origin

Appendix 3.3.6-- Special Rules of Origin

 PART I

GENERAL INTERPRETIVE NOTES

 

1. For purposes of interpreting the rules of origin set out in this Appendix:

 

(a)  the specific rule, or specific set of rules, that applies to a particular heading or

subheading is set out immediately adjacent to the heading or subheading;

 

(b)  the requirement of a change in tariff classification applies only to non-originating

materials;

 

 (c)  where a specific rule of origin is defined using the criterion of a change in tariff

classification, and the rule is written to exclude tariff provisions at the level of a

chapter, heading, or subheading, each Party shall construe the rule of origin to

require that materials classified in those excluded provisions be originating for the

good to be originating;

 

(d)  when a heading or subheading is subject to alternative specific rules of origin,

each Party shall consider the rule to be met if a good satisfies one of the

alternatives; 

 

(e)  when a single rule of origin is applicable to a group of headings or subheadings

and that rule of origin specifies a change of heading or subheading, each Party

shall interpret the rule such that the change of heading or subheading may occur

within a single heading or subheading or between headings or subheadings of the

group.  When, however, a rule refers to a change in heading or subheading

“outside that group,” each Party shall interpret the rule to require that the change

in heading or subheading must occur from a heading or subheading that is outside

the group of headings or subheadings set out in the rule; 

 

(f) reference to weight in the rules for goods provided for in chapter 1 through 24

means dry weight unless otherwise specified in the Harmonized System;

 

2. For purposes of this Appendix:

 

chapter means a chapter of the Harmonized System; and

 

section means a section of the Harmonized System.

assembled good, in the same heading or subheading; or
