JAEPA Certificate of Origin

ACCI JAEPA Certificates of Origin or other valid Certificates of Origin under JAEPA  are required to access the reduced tariff/duty rates on goods under the Japan-Australian Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA).

What is ACCI JAEPA Certificate of Origin?


The ACCI JAEPA Certificate of Origin can be used with goods exported in Japan to reduce or eliminate tariff and duty rates on those goods. To obtain ACCI JAEPA Certificate of Origin, you must first register with us as an exporter to JAEPA.

A separate, valid ACCI JAEPA Certificate of Origin is required for each shipment of goods in order to claim preferential duty rates.

Are my goods eligible?


Only goods that originate in either Japan or Australia enjoy preferential tariff rates, JAEPA preferential rules of origin (ROO) are agreed criteria used to ensure that this is the case.  These criteria are required to prevent transshipment, where goods from a third party are redirected through either Japan or Australia to avoid paying higher tariffs. Any imports into Japan or Australia that do not comply with the ROO set out in Chapter 3 and Annex 2: Product Specific Rules (PSRs) will be subject to the general rate of duty applied in Australia or Japan instead of the preferential tariff rates available under JAEPA.

For Australian exporters, in general as ‘originating’ under JAEPA and eligible for ACCI JAEPA Certificate of Origin is:

  • wholly obtained or produced entirely in  Australia (or Australia & Japan);
  • produced entirely in Australia (or Australia & Japan), from materials classified as ‘originating’ under the ROO; or
  • produced in  Australia (or Australia & Japan) using inputs from other countries, and meets the Product Specific Rule (PSR) applicable to that good.
