Free trade agreements provide a mechanism for the facilitation of trade in goods. Each agreement has information and links to relevant legislation, policy and notices on the rules of origin and how to access preferential rates of duty.

Other preferential arrangements
Australia has eleven other preferential arrangements that provide preferential rates of customs duty on a reciprocal or non-reciprocal basis to goods that are the produce or manufacture of countries and places to which that arrangement applies.
*For goods that are the produce or last place of manufacture in an additional duty country, additional duty of 35 per cent added to the general rate of customs duty must be applied.
The ABF will provide written advice, upon request, for determining whether goods are eligible for claiming preferential rates of customs duty under an FTA or other preferential arrangement. For further information, see:
