Import Consultancy - Origin and Free Trade Agreements

The origin of imported goods is that of the country where they were manufactured. Regardless of where the goods are shipped from, their origin will always remain their place of manufacture.

Australia has the following Bi-Lateral reciprocal Free Trade Agreements:

  • Australian New Zealand Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement (ANZCERTA)
  • Canada Australia Trade Agreement (CANATA)
  • Singapore-Australia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA)
  • Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA)
  • Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA)
  • Australia-Chile Free Trade Agreement (ACl-FTA)
  • Malaysia-Australia Free Trade Agreement (MAFTA)
  • Korea-Australia Free Trade Agreement (KAFTA)
  • Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA)


Australia has one Plurilateral reciprocal agreement:

  • ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Area


Australia also has non reciprocal schemes with:

  • Developing countries
  • South Pacific Islands
  • Papua New Guinea


These agreements are complex and manufacture alone does not mandate automatic eligibility and may have specific exclusions. Discuss your requirements with our Import Consultancy Team to confirm the eligibility of any goods imported into Australia under these schemes.
