Cumulation of origin

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 by Customs 4 Trade

Cumulation is a system that allows contracting parties to use originating products from each other.

EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) allows for full cumulation. The future Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and Japan will also provide for full cumulation.

Full cumulation allows the parties to an agreement to carry out working or processing on non-originating products in the area formed by them, which means that all operations carried out in the participating countries are taken into account.
Full cumulation allows for greater fragmentation of the production process than the more common used bilateral cumulation.
