Engage with Government
Members of the Furniture Industry Research Association are invited to have their say on 'Rules of Origin' and help shape policy.
Rules of Origin establish processes to define the economic nationality of a good and therefore whether it meets the criteria for zero or reduced tariff rates in a Free Trade Agreement (FTA). There are currently no Rules of Origin requirements in EU-UK trade due to the UK’s membership of the EU Customs Union.
There are 118 different product lines with tariffs ranging from 0% to 6.7% in the furniture sector, many of which have different rules.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy would like member views to ensure the UK Government takes on Rules of Origin which reflect business’s needs.
