The WCO Secretariat has published an updated version of the Comparative Study on Certification of Origin. The study captures the present state of affairs regarding certification of origin, both in the areas of non-preferential origin as well as preferential origin.
The study has been updated to take into consideration new trends both on non-preferential and preferential certification of origin and to enrich procedural material on origin as part of the Phase IV of the Action Plan on Revenue Package endorsed in 2019. The initial findings in relation to non-preferential rules of origin from the 2013 version of the study have been kept in the current version to ensure consistency and to maintain a possibility to see the development from the initial study conducted in 2001 and to anticipate similar studies in the future.
