The CEP is comprehensive and covers goods, services, investments and technical and hygienic/quarantine barriers to trade in goods. For merchandise exporters, the Tariffiner (external link) helps you make your decision. All tariffs to Singapore are now zero under all free trade agreements with Singapore. For exporters, it is important to look at the provisions of the free trade agreement on goods as a set of rules before they decide which agreement should be used. The importer may choose by the exporter or manufacturer the form of proof of origin it is seeking, provided it contains all the necessary data elements. A guide is available to merchants if they wish. Singapore is also a party to the ASEAN-Australia Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA), the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (P4) and the Trans-Pacific Trans-Pacific Partnership (PPTPP). The rules of origin of the new ANZSCEP protocol contain the largest number of provisions facilitating trade in these agreements and incorporate them into the new CSR timetable as part of the protocol. This creates the potential for companies to choose and choose between the provisions of the various agreements to ensure that they maximize the business opportunities offered.
Revised rules of origin for trans-Tasman trade came into effect on September 1, 2011. For more information on the rules of origin for ANCERTA and general instructions for using the agreement, see fact sheet 20 (PDF 268 KB). More information can also be found on the MFAT website. Therefore, you may have to decide on the free trade agreement that you must apply to transactions with Singapore. The Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (P4) is an agreement between Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Singapore and NZ. The P4 agreement, which represents “Pacific 4,” came into force in 2006. Under P4, most tariffs on goods traded between Member States were immediately abolished, with the remaining tariffs expiring (until 2015 for Brunei Darussalam and 2017 for Chile). The South Pacific Regional Trade and Economic Cooperation Agreement (SPARTECA) is a non-reciprocal trade agreement in which NZ (with Australia) provides preferential tariff treatment for certain products that are the production or production of Pacific Forum countries (known as the Forum Island Countries). For NZ products exported to an Island Country Forum, there is no preferential rate.

The New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (NZCFTA) came into force on 1 October 2008. NZ was the first OECD country to sign a comprehensive free trade agreement with China. The goods can be shipped by a non-party party to the agreement and maintain preference. However, goods must not enter the trade or trade of a party or be subject to certain operations other than unloading, transshipment, deconditioning and other procedures necessary to keep the goods in good condition while they are being transported by that party.
