Updating rules of origin – new report discusses how
Published: 29 May 2020
Can the rules of origin keep up with the changing conditions in production and trade? A new report from National Board of Trade Sweden discusses different ways to update the rules of origin in connection with increased servicification, digitalisation, sustainable development and utilisation of preferences.
– The rules of origin are based upon a few well established methods to determine a product’s origin. These methods still work. However, as production methods and techniques change, the rules of origin require an update too. Otherwise, there is a risk that the rules will be outdated and not fit for purpose, says Christopher Wingård, the author of the report report.
