ACCI KAFTA Certificate of Origin

ACCI KAFTA Certificates of Origin or other valid Certificates of Origin under KAFTA  are required to access the reduced tariff/duty rates on goods under the  Korea-Australia Free Trade Agreement (KAFTA).

What is ACCI KAFTA Certificate of Origin?


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

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

Are my goods eligible?


Only goods originating in either Korea or Australia enjoy duty preferences. KAFTA preferential rules of origin (ROO) are agreed criteria used to ensure that this is the case.  Preferential ROO are required to prevent transhipment, whereby goods from a third party are redirected through either Korea or Australia to avoid the payment of import tariffs. Any imports into Korea or Australia that do not comply with the ROO set out in Chapter 3 and Annex 3-A Schedule of Product Specific Rules will be subject to the general rate of duty instead of the preferential rates available under KAFTA.

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

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