Upon entry into force, 70% of tariff headings will be exempt from customs duties for goods entering Chinese Taipei. The tax on the remaining lines will decrease over a period of 12 years. Information on the rules of origin applicable to imports from Chinese Taipei and exports to Chinese Taipei can be found in Fact Sheet 48 (PDF 346 KB). Internationally, there are two important open access databases developed by international organizations for policymakers and businesses: the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (P4) agreement is an agreement between Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Singapore and New Zealand. The P4 agreement, which stands for “Pacific 4”, entered into force in 2006. Under P4, most tariffs on goods traded between Member States were immediately abolished, with the remaining duties due to expire (by 2015 for Brunei Darussalam and 2017 for Chile). Box 3: Indicate the full legal name and address of the manufacturer. If the certificate contains more than one second of producer, please attach a list of additional producers, including the legal name and address referring to the products described in box 5. If you want this information to be confidential, it is acceptable to indicate “Available for customs upon request”.
If the manufacturer and exporter are identical, fill in the “equal” field. If the producer is unknown, it is acceptable to declare “unknown”. For more information on the agreement, including a tariff expert and information on Chinese Taipei`s activities, please visit the website of the New Zealand Commerce and Industry Office for Chinese Taipei. The website contains links to the following ANZTEC and JG provisions that have been included in New Zealand legislation: the importer or buyer will assert the right to the FTA preference when clearing customs on importation, but will rely on the information provided by the exporter in the certificate or declaration. The importer may need these documents to prove the application to the local customs authority. On 1 October 2016, an amendment to the 1997 customs export provisions enters into force, which requires the entry of the certificate of origin (COO) number in the export entry declaration in the event of an application for tariff preference. For more information on the process and frequently asked questions, please see the COO data for exports to China. Singapore is also a party to the ASEAN-Australia Agreement on the New Zealand Free Trade Area (AANZFTA), the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (P4) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (CPTPP). The rules of origin provisions of the new ANZSCEP Protocol take over the most commercial rules possible in these agreements and incorporate them into the new PSR timetable provided for in the Protocol. Thailand is also a party to the AANZFTA agreement. Distributors should consider the most appropriate agreement for their imported/exported products.
