Origin Quotas and Alternatives to the Product-Specific Rules of Origin under the Canada – European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement and the Canada-United Kingdom Trade Continuity Agreement
Under the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the Canada-United Kingdom Trade Continuity Agreement (Canada-UK TCA), specific quantities of some products may qualify as originating under alternative product-specific rules of origin (origin quotas). Under the CETA origin quotas, products that include non-Canadian or non-European Union (EU) sourced materials may qualify as originating and receive preferential tariff treatment, up to the specified quantity, and likewise, products that include non-Canadian or non-United Kingdom (UK) sourced materials may qualify as originating and receive preferential tariff treatment, up to the specified quantity, under the Canada-UK TCA.
Under both agreements, origin quotas have been established for Agricultural Products (High-Sugar Containing Products, Sugar Confectionery and Chocolate Preparations, Processed Foods, and Dog and Cat Food), Fish and Seafood, Textiles, Apparel, and Vehicles.
This memorandum specifies the products that are eligible for the origin quotas, the manufacturing processes that products are required to undergo in the territory of the Parties to the CETA or the Canada-UK TCA, and the documentation needed to support a claim for CETA preferential tariff treatment or Canada-UK TCA preferential tariff treatment.
