Agreement on EU-New Zealand trade agreement

The European Union and New Zealand concluded negotiations on a trade agreement. The agreement removes duties on all EU goods exports to New Zealand from entry into force. The agreement will also eliminate or substantially reduce duties on most goods exported to the EU. Rules of origin have been agreed that ensure that products that have been significantly processed in one of the parties can benefit from the tariff preferences of the agreement. The documentation follows the latest standard based on self-certification to make the utilisation as easy as possible, especially for SMEs.

The agreement will have to be adopted by the Council of the EU and the European Parliament before entering into force. A summary of the trade agreement can be found here and all documents here.
