Rules of Origin

The Rules of Origin (RoO) are used to determine the country of origin of a product for purposes of international trade. RoO therefore ensure that countries benefiting from preferential trade agreements do not become an intermediate pit stop for other countries. By establishing coherent RoOs, producers from non-EPA countries are prevented from using the loophole of shipping their goods via an EPA country and thus reaching the EU market.
