Certificate of origin to benefit from the FTA

Anh Duc Vuong Export Department (Ministry of Industry and Trade) is implementing a pilot project self-certification of origin in ASEAN. The project aims to facilitate intra-ASEAN trade, strengthen regional integration, simplify procedures and reduce costs for exporters; optimize the efficiency of government resources such as manpower saving C / O.

Recognizing the advantages of the rules of origin in free trade agreements, GS. Deborah Elms- Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) - said, rules of origin shown on the commercial invoice to ensure the participating countries to benefit new agreement on the rate of 0. If Vietnam is members of the trade agreement, then the Vietnamese businesses incentives rather DN of the Agreement shall not be entitled to participate. ROO benefit all agreements as expressly stated how the incentives. Accordingly, the origin of each item, each product, the more complex the product, the certification is more difficult.

Accordingly, the test determines the origin of goods for export, the customs declaration autobiographies, self-responsibility before law for the origin of goods exported. Customs authorities to detect and prevent illegal transshipment of goods.

But the experts also said that the rules of origin if the record companies who knowingly false origin to enjoy the privileges or avoid trade barriers will be dealt with severely. Because it does not just affect the reputation of the company, lost customers, markets, prosecuted for criminal responsibility ... but also affect the credibility of a commodity on the international market. More extreme, when the product is removed from the list of preferential tariffs will affect the competitiveness of other enterprises.

Under the plan, the goal of rules of origin mechanism will make clear, easy to implement, but there are strong enough to prevent fraud in the self-certification of origin.
