Proposed amendments to the NAFTA rules of origin — Domestic consultations

The purpose of this notice is to seek views from interested parties regarding proposed amendments to the NAFTA rules of origin. As well, this notice invites new requests for the liberalization of the rules of origin.

The proposed changes to the NAFTA rules of origin, set out in the Schedule below, would liberalize or simplify some of the rules of origin applicable to several product categories, including miscellaneous edible preparations; petroleum; products of the chemical or allied industries; plastics and rubber and articles thereof; cork; glass; non-ferrous metals; certain machinery and mechanical appliances; certain electrical machinery and equipment; sound and television image recorders and reproducers; locomotives; parts for trailers and semi-trailers; optical, medical and measuring instruments and parts; medical and other specialists’ chairs and other furniture; toys and games and miscellaneous manufactured articles.

The proposals were developed to respond to requests from producers seeking more liberal NAFTA rules of origin or to align the NAFTA rules of origin with more liberal rules of origin under other free trade agreements that each NAFTA country has negotiated subsequent to NAFTA.

Background

The NAFTA rules of origin are used to determine which goods are eligible for NAFTA tariff preferences. Goods containing non-originating materials can be considered North American if the non-originating materials are sufficiently transformed in the NAFTA region so as to undergo the changes in tariff classification that are specified in Annex 401 of the Agreement, which is posted at www.international.gc.ca/trade-agreementsaccords-commerciaux/agr-acc/nafta-alena/ann-401-09.aspx?lang=eng&view=d. In addition, some goods must include a specified percentage of North American content to qualify for preferential tariff treatment.

The initial government notice inviting industry comments on liberalizing the NAFTA rules of origin was published in Part Ⅰ of the Canada Gazette on December 20, 2003. The first set of amendments under this initiative was made to the NAFTA Rules of Origin Regulations in 2005, while the second and third sets of changes came into force on July 1, 2006, and September 1, 2009, respectively. This notice pertains to a fourth package of proposed amendments, which the NAFTA Parties are aiming to implement in 2013.

Based on industry submissions and in consultation with industry representatives in the three countries, the proposed changes were developed jointly by the governments of Canada, Mexico and the United States. The governments will review any further public comments resulting from these domestic consultations to determine whether the proposals will be implemented as amendments to the rules of origin in NAFTA.

It should be noted that the proposed amendments are based on the 2007 version of the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (Harmonized System), upon which the tariff schedules of most countries are based. When the existing NAFTA rules of origin undergo technical rectification to align them with the current (2012) version of the Harmonized System, the proposed amendments, if accepted, would be included as part of that conversion.

Submissions

Interested parties wishing to comment on the proposed amendments should submit their views in writing by October 19, 2012. In developing comments on the current proposals as well as making submissions for new requests to liberalize the NAFTA rules of origin, interested parties should focus on the impact that such measures would have on the products of interest to them.

Address for submissions

Submissions should be sent to the following address: NAFTA Rules of Origin, Trade and Tariff Policy, International Trade Policy Division, Department of Finance, 140 O’Connor Street, 14th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G5, 613-992-6761 (fax), Tariff-Tarif@fin.gc.ca (email).

General inquires can be directed to Trade and Tariff Policy, Department of Finance, 613-996-5470 (telephone).

Chapter 29 Organic chemicals

Insert the following Chapter Notes:

Note 1: Notes 3 through 4 of this Chapter confer origin to a good of any heading or subheading in this Chapter, except as otherwise specified in those notes.

Note 2: Notwithstanding Note 1, a good is an originating good if it meets the applicable change in tariff classification specified in the rules of origin of this Chapter.

Note 3: Chemical Reaction

A good of this Chapter that results from a chemical reaction in the territory of one or more of the Parties shall be treated as an originating good.

For purposes of this section, a “chemical reaction” is a process (including a biochemical process) that results in a molecule with a new structure by breaking intramolecular bonds and by forming new intramolecular bonds, or by altering the spatial arrangement of atoms in a molecule.

The following are not considered to be chemical reactions for the purposes of determining whether a good is originating:

  • (a) dissolution in water or in another solvent;
  • (b) the elimination of solvents, including solvent water; or
  • (c) the addition or elimination of water of crystallization.

Note 4: Purification

A good of this Chapter that is subject to purification shall be treated as an originating good provided that the purification occurs in the territory of one or more of the Parties and results in the elimination of not less than 80 percent of the impurities.

Note 5: Separation Prohibition

A good that undergoes a change from one classification to another in the territory of one or more of the Parties as a result of the separation of one or more materials from a man-made mixture shall not be treated as an originating good unless the isolated material underwent a chemical reaction in the territory of one or more of the Parties.
