With immediate effect, please be advised of the following changes to the Preference Rule Code for Certificates of Origin (CoO) issued under the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Area (AANZFTA) or Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

AANZFTA changes

• Preference Rule Code PSR should now be used in place of CTC, CTH, OTH or RVC.
