New Zealand

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Australia and New Zealand have a long history of trade agreements, having first established a preferential agreement​ in 1933. 

In 1966, Australia and New Zealand entered into the New Zealand Australia Free Trade Agreement

The current free trade agreement, the Australia-New Zealand Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement (ANZCERTA)​, entered into force on 1 January 1983. 

The Protocol to ANZCERTA on Acceleration of Free Trade in Goods entered into force on 18 August 1988 and accelerated the elimination of tariffs for all goods to 1 July 1990, ahead of timeframes agreed in the original 1983 ANZCERTA. 

An Agreement to Amend Article 3 of ANZCERTA​ came into effect on 1 January 2007 that provided modern rules of origin arrangements, similar to Australia’s other free trade agreements. It included a schedule of product specific rules of origin and repeal of the ANZCERTA Factory Cost rules of origin from 1 January 2012.
