2 Subject to section 4, casual goods that are acquired in a CPTPP country are considered to originate in that country and are entitled to the benefit of the CPTPP tariff applicable to that country if
- (a) the marking of the goods is in accordance with the marking laws of that CPTPP country and indicates that the goods are either the product of that country or the product of Canada; or
- (b) the goods do not bear a mark and nothing indicates that the goods are neither the product of that CPTPP country nor the product of Canada.
3 Subject to section 4, casual goods that are acquired in a CPTPP country — the marking of which is in accordance with the marking laws of that country and indicates that the goods are the product of a CPTPP country other than that country or Canada — are considered to originate in the CPTPP country indicated by that marking and are entitled to the benefit of the CPTPP tariff applicable to that CPTPP country.
