    Abstract

    Rules of origin arrangements under the Australia–New Zealand Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement (CER) were referred to the Commission for examination and report by May 2004. The request stemmed from concerns that Australian and New Zealand firms were having difficulty achieving the minimum content threshold set down under the CER. The Commission’s final report recommended that the CER rules of origin, which confine access to trade concessions to goods produced in Australia or New Zealand, should be liberalised.
