Course description: This course explores current trade agreements, rules of origin, how to establish where goods originate "officially" and the internal factors necessary to support origin declarations. The UK will be negotiating, during the transitional period of Brexit, a series of trade agreements. Based on current commentary of a “Canada” style model, this may result in the use of rules of origin to determine which product groups will get preference. Trade agreements give preference to agreed products between two trading nations or trading blocs. Preference means that importers and exporters can benefit from either free or a reduced rate of import duty.
